Introducing the SAXS, a new small-angle scattering instrument in MEM·C’s shared facilities


MEM·C is welcoming a new instrument to the shared facilities. The Xenocs Xeuss 3.0 Small Angle X-ray Scattering instrument will be available to the community the end of this week (09/01/2022). 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.

The instrument comes to MEM·C in a collaboration with Prof. Lilo Pozzo’s group who purchased the instrument with an award separate from MEM·C’s NSF MRSEC award. The capabilities and the research associated with the SAXS are closely aligned with MEMC’s and so the unit will be managed jointly by MEM·C and the Pozzo group.

UW researchers, external academic researchers and industry users are encouraged to sign up to use the new SAXS. As with all MEM·C shared facilities instruments, training will be provided by graduate student and post doctoral student “super users”.
