Neutron Scattering

Small angle neutron scattering (SANS) is a technique for characterizing length scales on the order of 1 nm to 100 nm and is ideal for characterizing the internal structure of dense, opaque samples. Time-resolved SANS can be used to obtain dynamic information. We conduct SANS measurements at Oak Ridge National Lab in Knoxville, TN and the National Institute of Standards and Technology in Gaithersburg, MD to characterize the structure and dynamics of extracellular matrix components, engineered composites and a variety of soft materials.
