ISIS neutron source chose the Nano-inXider from Xenocs

ln2016_05_isis.large.jpgThe Nano-inXider SAXS/WAXS system from Xenocs was installed at the beginning of the month at the ISIS neutron source situated at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory of the Science and Technology Facilities Council, Oxfordshire, UK.

The equipment will be used by hundreds of users coming to ISIS to characterize their samples, which covers a very broad range of science. The Small & Wide Angle X-ray Scattering equipment is very complementary to what the neutron beamlines offer. With the Nano-inXider, users can screen their samples and get valuable information at the nanoscale very quickly, before deciding whether to investigate their samples further with the neutron source.
