Human hair

The SAXS pattern of human hair. Data were collected using Rigaku's S-MAX3000 3-pinhole SAXS camera and MicroMax-002+ microfocus X-ray source. The sample-detector distance was 1.5m. Total length of the camera was 3m. This SAXS system can serve as a powerful tool in the area of cosmetic research, for example, for characterizing the cell membrane complex of the hair.

SAXS pattern of human hair

The S-MAX3000 pinhole SAXS camera design is available with a choice of conventional or high brilliance X-ray sources. A 3-meter, fully evacuated camera length provides both high intensity and high resolution. Coupled with a fully integrated 2-dimensional multi-wire proportional counter, the system is capable of making highly sensitive measurements from both isotropic and anisotropic materials. A wide range of sample stage attachments provide maximum flexibility in controlling environmental sample conditions during measurement. Read more...
