SAXS at Queen's

The dominant research interest of the Queen's University Small Angle X-ray Scattering (SAXS) Laboratory involves the study of microstructure and dynamical processes in polymer materials, both in 2-D (film) and 3-D (bulk) forms. This is primarily an experimental project utilizing scattering techniques to probe the unique self ordering seen in block copolymer materials at nanometer length scales.  An active collaboration with the Department of Materials and Metallurgical Engineering (Queen's University) applying SAXS methods to the study of nanostructure in aluminum alloys is also in progress.

Measurements are done using an in-house small angle x-ray scattering apparatus as well as off-site facilities, such as the Cornell High Energy Synchrotron Source of Cornell University and the National Synchrotron Light Source of Brookhaven National Laboratory (Long Island, NY).  Past synchrotron SAXS measurements have also been performed at the Laboratorio Nacional de Luz Sincrotron (Campinas, Brazil) and the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (Grenoble, France).
