SAXS Fundamentals Training 2022

Join us for an in-person, hands-on, 3-day SAXS Fundamentals training to experience using the B21, DL-SAXS and I22 SAXS beamlines.

Diamond Light Source, Oxfordshire


Since 2017 Diamond has been running a series of regular training courses for the small angle scattering community. In the last 5 years we have covered the theory of small angle scattering, the use of in-house and external data reduction and analysis software and, most recently, how to write Python code to automate common data analysis routines.

However, one crucial element that has been missing is hands-on experience using the B21, DL-SAXS and I22 SAXS beamlines here at Diamond. This course is aimed at not only providing that experience but also to cover best practices for sample preparation and data acquisition, processing and first steps with analysis.

This training is geared towards first year PhD students as well as other early days users of Small Angle X-ray Scattering (SAXS).
