Extruded polyethylene

The SAXS patterns of extruded polyethylene (left) and stretched polyethylene (right). The samples were taken from a 6-pack ring tab. The SAXS data show that extruded polyethylene has slight orientation, whereas the stretched polyethylene becomes oriented. Data were collected at sample to detector distance of 1.5m with Rigaku S-MAX3000 standard 3m 3-pinhole SAXS camera.

SAXS patterns of extruded polyethylene

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...
