PANalytical offers the ScatterX78 attachment specifically developed for the Empyrean X-ray diffraction system. Based on a unique patented technology, the ScatterX78 helps in obtaining small- and wide-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS/WAXS) data of excellent quality. This data is similar to those acquired with dedicated SAXS systems.
The ScatterX78 attachment also features an evacuated beam path. It can be utilized for studying nanoscale dimensions and structures in solids, liquids, gels, powders and fibers. In addition, the attachment helps in identifying and quantifying crystalline phases.
The main features of the ScatterX78 attachment are:
- Compact and ergonomic
- Easy to use
- Add-on to XRD platform
- High sensitivity for weakly scattering samples
- Short measurement times
- Accessible angular range: 0.08 to 78o
- 2D SAXS option
The applications of the ScatterX78 attachment are:
- Colloidal dispersions
- Porous materials
- Liquid crystalline phases
