Ultra-SAXS can enhance the capabilities of existing SAXS/WAXS beamlines and laboratory instruments. A compact Ultra-SAXS module has been developed, which extends the measurable $q$-range with $0.0015 \leq q\mathrm{(nm^{-1})} \leq 0.2$, allowing structural dimensions between $30 \leq D$(nm)$ \leq 4000$ to be probed in addition to the range covered by a high-end SAXS/WAXS instrument. By shifting the module components in and out on their respective motor stages, SAXS/WAXS measurements can be…
