Small Angle X-ray Scattering for Materials Research at the new beamline P62 (-SAXSMAT-)



Sylvio Haas (FS-PETRA-D (FS-PET-D Fachgruppe P62 (SmallAngleSc)))

This year the new Small Angle X-ray Scattering Beamline for Materials Research (P62 – SAXSMAT) is expecting first X-rays.

Therefore, the P62 team wants to discuss with the potential users about requirements concerning sample handling, sample environment, measurement strategies, data evaluation, etc. The contributions of participants are deeply appreciated by presenting their research plans at the future instrument and the technical requirements for these experiments to make them feasible. Postdocs and Ph.D. students are strongly encouraged to present their research as a poster contribution during the workshop.

At the workshop the main research areas of the SAXSMAT beamline will be covered:

• Anomalous SAXS/WAXS

• Mapping in reciprocal space: SAXS/WAXS computed tomography

• In situ and operando SAXS/WAXS

• High throughput SAXS


The event will be held as ZOOM online meeting. The link and password will be sent to all registered participants shortly before the meeting. Therefore, it is urgently needed that you are register yourself for this event.
