This course aims to provide users of the I22 and B21 beamlines with a rounded knowledge of small angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) as an analytical technique.
The course will begin with an introductory lecture on SAS and move through to real world examples from contemporary researchers. Over two full days, attendees will cover the underlying principles of SAXS and gain hands-on experience with data correction, reduction and analysis software alongside advice on writing SAXS publications.
The course will also provide attendees with the chance to meet researchers alongside software developers both of whom are advancing SAXS as a technique by developing new analytical techniques or packages to aid data reduction and analysis.
For attendees who anticipate also attending the SAS Science Meeting, held immediately afterwards, dinner will be available from the on-site canteen (R22) between 6 to 8 PM, the cost of which will not be covered by attendance of this course.
