Xenocs Xeuss 2.0 & 3.0 Small- and Wide-Angle X-ray scattering (SAXS/WAXS) System

FHN SAXS WAXS Xray system

Small- and wide-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS/WAXS) is widely used for structural characterization of nanomaterials, such as polymers, nanocomposites, patterned structures, thin films, gels and biological samples. The Xenocs Xeuss 2.0 & 3.0 SAXS/WAXS system is utilized to investigate the structures of such materials on a sub-nanometer to hundreds of nanometers scale. 


  • D2+ 70 kV Liquid MetalJet X-ray source.
  • Eiger2 R 4M and Pilatus 1M photon-counting X-ray detector.
  • Covered Q range: 0.003 Å-1 ~ 5.5 Å-1.
  • 27 positions capillary holder, 26 positions solid sample holder, 15 positions thin film sample holder, 8 positions powder/gel sample holder.
  • Standard and advanced grazing Incidence (GI-) SAXS/WAXS stage.
  • Capillary heater (10°C ~ 80°C) for in-situ SAXS/WAXS measurements.
  • Linkam TST350 tensile stage (RT ~ 350°C) for in-situ SAXS/WAXS measurements.
  • Linkam DSC450 DSC (RT - 350°C) for in-situ SAXS/WAXS measurements.


The Xenocs Xeuss 2.0 & 3.0 SAXS/WAXS system, employing a liquid metal jet X-ray source with high power density and small beam divergence, enables the characterization of the structure at a much faster data acquisition speed with better precision and accuracy. Specifically, the significantly higher brightness than any other available microfocus X-ray source and the closest possible to synchrotron performance permits the design of time-resolved, in-situ or operando SAXS/WAXS experiments during material synthesis, chemical reaction, phase transition and materials processing.
