4D LABS Seminar - Small (and Wide) Angle X-ray Scattering

June 05, 2019

We are pleased to invite you to a seminar by Dr. Scott Barton hosted by 4D LABS at SFU on Wednesday, June 5, 2019!

SAXSLAB and Xenocs

What can you do with Small (and Wide) Angle X-ray Scattering?


This introductory talk will provide an overview of Small Angle X-ray Scattering (SAXS) and the capabilities of the SAXS instrument located in the 4D LABS at SFU.  We’ll show how SAXS reveals large scale structure (1nm to 300nm) and molecular organization in various materials like polymers, colloids and thin films.  In the 4D LABS, SAXS can monitor perturbations to the structure in-situ as a function of temperature and humidity.  Finally, we’ll discuss some recent results from protein solution scattering and the complementary use of transmission SAXS with Grazing Incidence (GISAXS) for thin film analysis.
