small-angle X-ray scattering

small-angle X-ray scattering - SAXS


SAXS is a modern small-angle X-ray scattering apparatus with a high degree of automation that allows to probe the structure of matter at dimensions ranging from 1 to 1000 nm.
The experiments carried out will allow to study different materials and systems such as polymers, catalysts or nanoparticles and to prepare experiments on synchrotrons such as the ESRF in Grenoble or SOLEIL.


Installed since August 2021 at the Chemistry Laboratory, the SAXS was essentially co-financed by the LabEx iMust, the ENS de Lyon and the Chemistry Laboratory. The financing of this equipment was done within the framework of scientific projects involving the Chemistry Laboratory and the Physics Laboratory of the ENS de Lyon, but also academic partners such as the Institut Lumière Matière, the CP2M laboratory and the IRCELYON.
