Spin-echo Small angle scattering (SESANS)

To characterize particles and structures in the 0.1-20 micrometer range

SESANS is a new efficient method to measure structures of materials in real space. Structures can be determined over three orders of magnitude in length scale, from 20 nanometer to 20 micrometer, which is an order of magnitude larger than conventional small-angle neutron scattering (SANS). In contrast to traditional scattering methods, the data in real space, rather than reciprocal space, this makes interpretation easier. These properties make SESANS a new powerful tool for the study of structural properties of materials.
