Webinar: Making Good Use of State-of-the-art Detectors and Multiple Configurations at the CoSAXS Beamline of MAX IV Laboratory

Wednesday, November 23, 2022
3 p.m. (CET) 
with Dr.Tomás S. Plivelic
from the CoSAXS beamline at the MAX IV Laboratory

Nowadays, fourth generation synchrotrons like the MAX IV laboratory (Sweden), Sirius (Brazil) and ESRF (European synchrotron in France) provide high brilliance sources with very high flux and small beam spot sizes at the samples, together with a high fraction of coherent photon flux. This fact brings a full set of new opportunities to the researchers in the most diverse fields. 

However, the main challenge at the beamlines has been how to produce reliable data avoiding radiation damage on the samples. The problem is particularly serious for biological materials (like protein and membranes) and characteristic “soft” materials like gels, surfactants and lipids.

In this webinar, Dr. Tomás S. Plivelic will show examples with DECTRIS hybrid pixel detectors in different configurations and customized geometries, providing cutting edge technologies for making an optimal use of new generation SAXS instruments at the CoSAXS beamline at the MAX IV laboratory.
