Calculating scattering by hand – example 1
Those who read the older SAXS literature will note liberal use of Fourier transforms to calculate the scattering behaviour of odd-shaped particles. Likewise, the effects […]
The Dark Side of Science.
A little step sideways from small-angle scattering for this week’s post. As you are probably aware by now, I sometimes use the LaN weblog to […]
Guinier in polydisperse systems revisited
Last week, I was contacted by Christian Gollwitzer (author of this excellent paper) about something posted here (and in particular detailed in this document) a […]
Comparisons of Doom: line vs. pinhole.
[ed: My current project is running at an end, so if you happen to have a job offer I cannot refuse, I will seriously weigh […]
Intensity in density
A few weeks ago, a dataset landed on my desk from a very dense system: scattering from dry, packed SiO2 nanoparticle powder. Dense systems add […]
Guest post by Dr. Jan Ilavsky: Meet an Ultra-scatterer!
[ED: I’ve started asking around for guest contributions for the LookingAtNothing site, in order to provide a broader view of the SAS-related activities than I […]
Guest Post by Dr. Grégory Stoclet: Crazy deformation of polymers, studied with in-situ SAXS.
[ED: I’ve started asking around for guest contributions for the LookingAtNothing site, in order to provide a broader view of the SAS-related activities that I […]
12 corrections in a row
Just a couple of housekeeping notes: I’m giving talks in Europe in a month at the following locations: Unité Matériaux et Transformations (UMET), Lille on […]
How to fit a scattering pattern part 1: the initial look.
By the way, my topical review paper on SAXS data collection and correction has been published and is available open access here! Recently, some […]
