simultaneous rheology and SAXS in a vertical configuration

10-07-2014

The beam was deflected through 90 degrees upwards and the detector was mounted on the ceiling of BM26B!

In the photos the rheometer has not yet been installed. The X-rays passed right through the rheometer plates allowing us to collect excellent SAXS and rheology data. In addition it was possible to scan the rheometer across the beam enabling us to explore different shear rates.
