14. Complementarity of small-angle x-ray and neutron scattering: solvation effects and quaternary structure of proteins in solution
Dr Francesco Spinozzi (University of the Le Marche)
Small-angle X-ray (SAXS) and neutron (SANS) scattering are complementary techniques that are largely exploited to determine the structure of complex biological macromolecules in solution, such as proteins. Since solution proteins are randomly oriented particles, the scattering signal is purely one-dimensional so that the basic challenge is to develop methods able to extract three-dimensional...

60. Quokka and food - Small-angle neutron scattering and discovering food structure at the nanoscale
Dr Elliot Gilbert (ANSTO)
Dr Sigrid Bernstorff (Elettra, Trieste)
Small Angle X-ray Scattering (SAXS) is a well-established measurement tool that has been around for about 60 years. But the advent of modern third generation synchrotron radiation sources in the early nineties has opened new possibilities for structural determinations on the nanoscale which were not possible in the past. The high brilliance of maschines like Elettra in Trieste allows for fast...
