Performing X-rays during changes in temperature

Linkam Scientific Instruments is working with French instrument company, Xenocs, to provide the facility to perform X-ray experiments under changing temperature and/or tensile conditions.

Linkam has announced that its temperature stages have been chosen by Xenocs to incorporate in its recently launched Nano-inXider X-ray characterisation system opening new perspectives in many research fields. 

With the demand for more information on the properties of materials on the nanoscale, Xenocs now offer two of Linkam's stages, providing the ability to change in situ experimental conditions. The HFSX350 temperature stage enables studies in transmission mode simultaneously with Grazing-Incidence Small Angle Scattering (GISAXS) measurements over a temperature range from -196 °C to 350 °C. Operating over the same temperature range is the TST350 tensile stage which enables the operator to change the tensile force on the sample over a choice of ranges: 0.01 N to 20 N or 0.1 N to 200 N.
