András Wacha, the main designer and operator of CREDO has successfully defended his Ph.D. dissertation, titled Nanostructure Research by Small-Angle X-Ray Scattering: From Instrument Design to New Insights in Materials Sciences on 13. June 2016.
A new article has just been published in the Journal of Applied Crystallography on a mathematical method for the selection of the optimum collimation parameters:
Wacha, András. “Optimized Pinhole Geometry for Small-Angle Scattering.” Journal of Applied Crystallography 48.6 (2015): 1843–1848. DOI: 10.1107/S1600576715018932
This is the method we routinely use on CREDO to obtain the highest possible flux while the beam is free from parasitic scattering.
Today, we start a news feed for the CREDO instrument, please stay tuned for the updates.
