The fully computer‐controlled user‐dedicated small‐angle scattering facility JUSIFA was set up for general use at the DORIS Synchrotron Radiation Source in DESY (Hamburg). This beamline is especially designed for anomalous scattering studies of anisotropic samples in materials science and enables ASAXS studies to be undertaken on the length scale 0.5 to 100 nm in an energy range of 4.5 to 35 keV. 
Optimized pinhole geometry for small‐angle scattering
In order to make the most of the low photon flux in laboratory small-angle X-ray scattering instruments, the experimental geometry has to be chosen carefully, with special stress on the beam-shapingExpand

A new small-angle X-ray scattering set-up on the crystallography beamline I711 at MAX-lab.
This work demonstrates how a cost-effective SAXS station can be constructed on a multipurpose beamline and also demonstrates the effort to establish a micro-fluidic sample environment for structural analysis of samples that are only available in limited quantities. Expand
Novel Application of Anomalous Small-Angle X-ray Scattering to Characterization of Condensed Matter
