The Xeuss 2.0 HR SAXS/WAXS system was installed in May 2016 at the State Key Laboratory of Polymer Materials Engineering, Sichuan University, Chengdu, China.
After the installation, theoretical & practical training was delivered on site.
While theoretical training is open to a large number of attendees - around eighty students attended the training at Sichuan University -
practical training is delivered to small groups of users who can work directly on the machine.
Theoretical training aims to give attendees a good background on small & wide-angle x-ray scattering. It is a good opportunity for students to learn about the technique. At Sichuan University, the room was full !

Dr Manuel Fernández, expert scientist at Xenocs who delivered the training in Chengdu, comments.
Most of the training we deliver is practical, though. It is really a ‘hands-on’ training on the machine. I work with a small group of end-users who learn how to use the machine and start working directly on experiments relevant to their research study.
