Introduction to SAXS and WAXS

The lectures start with an introduction to the basics of the physics of x-ray interactions with materials and the need of a non-destructive atomic and molecular structure probe. Then, a basic review of x-ray production and optics for scattering experiments will be presented. It will be followed by a how-to introduction to sample environments and data acquisition and reduction. Ending with a brief introduction to data analysis and interpretation.
