D22 - Large dynamic range small-angle diffractometer
Some typical SANS patterns
SANS patterns are often quite beautiful with a reminiscence of Vasareli art painting.
- No charge, very penetrating, and non destructive to samples
- Neutron wavelengths are comparable to atomic sizes and inter-distance spacing
- Neutron interactions with hydrogen and deuterium are widely different making the deuterium labeling method an advantage.
