To the States, and other cutting-room clippings

Dear readers, As you read this, I’ll be trying to get to the Denver X-ray Conference in Montana. I’ll be giving a talk there on Friday morning introducing small-angle scattering to fellow X-ray afficionados and hopefully convert a soul or two to the narrow field we’re in.

The Bonse Hart instrument works!

Ok, so let’s start with the disclaimer: very initial results (fresh off the instrument, hence the delay), and the primary beam intensity is still very, very weak (flux at sample position: ~5kHz, at 10% generator power). Background detection level is typically on the order of 1 Hz.

Slight delay.

My apologies for not having a post ready this week, I wanted to post about instrument alignment and how amazingly well it works, but it turns out machine alignment isn’t all that easy. As another post was not yet complete either, I have to take a raincheck and update soon again! Sorry for the delay! […]
