Xenocs has recently installed a Xeuss SAXS/WAXS system at CSIR-NIIST, Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala, India.

"I am pleased to avail the Xeuss SAXS/WAXS facility at CSIR-NIIST. The flexible configuration with the option of keeping detector at different distances from sample stage made it possible to widen the gamut of materials studied by concurring or amalgamating both SAXS and WAXS information with great efficacy. Besides, the advantage of integrating different sample environments allows one to conduct materials analysis in different environment and temperature range. I am also happy that our students received an excellent post-installation training from Xenocs application scientist. All together it is a wonderful experience to work on Xeuss SAXS/WAXS system."
