small-angle X-ray scattering at high pressure

Project: Research

Description

Experiments performed in order to assess the possibility to collect good solution phase SAXS data using a conventional diamond anvil cell high pressure cell.

Key findings

Trial tests showed infeasibility of the proposed experiment. A high background induced by the standard thickness DAC diamond windows in a combination with a low scattering power of sample solutions didn’t allow distinguishing a signal from the sample in collected images.

Notes

Experiments performed at Diamond light source (beamline I22) during granted beamline commissioning time
