BL11 (NCD)

The BL11 (NCD), Non-Cristalline Difraction,beamline is dedicated to small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) and wide-angle X-ray scattering (WAXS) and both measurements can be simultaneously carried out. It is equipped with advanced optics and detectors covering various scientific areas in the field of biomaterials and hard and soft condensed matter. It allows characterizing a very large range of samples including biological systems, such as fibre systems, membrane systems or cellular organelles, samples in solution and samples of polymers and nanotechnology systems including nanoparticles on substrates. The longest resolvable length is close to 900 Angstrom.
