Xenocs Xeuss 3.0 Small Angle X-ray Scattering (SAXS)

The Xeuss 3.0 is the latest generation instrument for Small Angle X-ray Scattering and is already installed in leading research facilities around the world. It incorporates all the latest innovations from Xenocs for added capabilities, flexibility and ease-of-use.

Capabilities

  • Particle size distribution ranging from a few nanometers to more than 300 nm in diameter (or up to few microns with USAXS)
  • Crystallization rates and lamellar structure of semicrystalline polymers
  • Size and shape analysis of surfactants or proteins and other macromolecules in solutions
  • Organization and orientation of nanomaterials at the atomic- or the nano-scale, in bulk or at surfaces
  • Phase segregation studies of alloys
  • Operando and in situ studies

Sample Holders (Stages)

  • Solid stage: for measuring solid films;
  • Powder and gel stages;
  • Capillary stage: for measuring liquid solutions or dispersions;
  • GISAXS stage: for Grazing-Incidence Small Angle X-ray Scattering measurements;
  • Peltier stage: for measuring samples at temperatures from -30 C to 150 C;
  • Humidity stage: for measuring samples at relative humidity from 1 % to 95 %;
  • Modular force stage: for measuring solid samples under mechanical stress;
  • Temperature stage: for measuring samples at temperatures from -150 C to 350 C;
  • Biocube: robot to automatically load samples into capillaries.
