Modular System for Nanostructure Analysis:

SAXSpace – is a new nanostructure analyzer based on small- and wide-angle X-ray scattering (SWAXS). Nano-sized particles and sample domains scatter X-rays towards small angles; the resulting scattering pattern provides information on the overall size and shape of the nanostructures. SAXSpace provides easy handling and push-button alignment combined with versatile and precise sample stages. 
This makes SAXSpace an ideal tool for investigating nanostructures in many different materials, including proteins, foods, pharmaceuticals, polymers, nanoparticles and nanostructured surfaces.
