Small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) is a technique for determining the structure of particles, polymer, proteins and other complexes and aggregates. The measurements are done directly on solutions and suspensions and do not require any special sample preparation. However, the measured intensities are weak, and therefore a high intensity X-ray source is employed. The application concerns an upgrade of the liquid metal jet X-ray source at the SAXS at Aarhus University, which was funded in 2014 by the Carlsberg Foundation. The novel technologies used in the source have been further developed and the upgrade will give higher flux and higher stability. This will give better quality data in a broad range of research projects.
