is the outcome of the combined knowledge and skills of Dectris and Hecus. The
small- and wide-angle x-ray scattering system S3-MICRO with the Pilatus 100K-detector
is now available and impresses with power, speed and compactness.
This S/WAXS instrument stands for:
- even shorter measurement times
- easy handling
- zero background and ultimate linearity
Test Results Exceed Expectations
The primary beam, with a total intensity of ~ 3x107 photons/s,
has a half-width of < 2 pixels (1 pix = (0.172 mm2), and 60 %
of the primary intensity is contained in the central 3 pixels. Thereby, and
through the low beam convergence of ~0.5 mrad, the target resolution range of
1-200 nm, with a brilliance of > 109 has been achieved. The zero-noise
characteristics of the detector, together with its unique dynamic range (0-106),
allows direct absolute-scale SAXS measurements, transmission scanning and high-resolution
GISAXS with S3-MICROpix®.
The patterns are free of optical distortions ('beam smearing'),
as otherwise encountered in systems with conventional Kratky optics. These features
open new and highly attractive opportunities for SAXS in the analytical laboratory
for R&D, quality control and process analytical technology.
