X-ray and Particle Characterization Facilities

Faculty of Chemical Engineering

The x-ray and particle characterization facilities mainly focuses on small-angle x-ray scattering (SAXS), a well-established technique for studying structural features of colloidal or nanometric dimensions (1-100 nm). Appropriate analysis of SAXS data can provide wealth of structural information such as size, shape, internal structure and mass of particles, degree of agglomeration or superstructure, particle size distribution in polydispersed systems, and fractal dimensions in disordered systems. The center also offers equipment for x-ray diffraction.
