XEUSS, our new SAXS/WAXS system was installed in January 2012 in KU Leuven. Prof. Bart Goderis gave us his feedback on the system:
“Very recently, we received the XEUSS SAXS/WAXS equipment from Xenocs. We are working on a broad range of materials, which in most cases include soft matter components. With this instrument we are able to cover a large q-range, covering both SAXS and WAXS in a single shot. In addition, having selected Mo radiation we are able to insert sample holders that because of excessive absorption would not work in conjunction with a Cu source. This makes the XEUSS for us the ideal laboratory platform with very similar philosophy to synchrotron beamlines having a parallel beam and full flexibility in the sample area. Finally, the XEUSS platform is easy to use and fully new experiments can be set in a few minutes.”
