NANOSTAR: X-ray small- and wide-angle scattering with point focus and area detector
(Type/Manufacturer: Bruker AXS)
The instrument is used for stucture determination in the range between about 0.3 nm to 80 nm. In particular it is used for:

Nanostructure analysis (nanopores, particles or macromolecules in bulk or in solution) by means of Small Angle X-ray Scattering (SAXS), and atomic/molecular structure determination by means of Wide Angle X-ray Scattering (WAXS)

Nanostructure mapping by means of scanning-SAXS/WAXS with 100 mm scanning resolution

Orientation analysis (orientation and shape of particles and fibers in composites, crystallographic texture)

Main components:
• Sealed tube X-ray generator (Cu-Ka) with cross-coupled graded multilayer optics (Göbel-mirrors)
• Easy exchancable pinhole system adjustable for high flux or for small beam
• Specimen chamber with space for up to 20 specimens, x-y scanning stage and specimen rotation; operation in vacuum, air or inert gas
• Area detector (multiwire proportional counter)
• Full instrument control via PC with high degree of measurement automatisation
• Data reduction and basic data evaluation software
