Product News – Small Angle Scattering at Elevated Temperatures

Linkam Scientific's heating stages are increasingly being used in the x-ray world, and a recent product developed with Thorsten Hegmann at the University of Manitoba means that normal transmission and grazing incidence studies can be carried out using the same heating/freezing stage.

Working with a Rigaku SAXS spectrometer, the Linkam HFSX350-GI can allow spectral data to be acquired across a temperature range of -196°C to +350°C under evacuated conditions.

Torsten Hegmanns group have been using the new stage to successfully characterize their liquid crystal nanoparticle composite materials.
