Small-Angle X-Ray Scattering (SAXS) for Objects in Dilute Solution
Download Video (5.9 MB)
Different ways of representing SAXS data. Porod plots pull out high-Q features on a linear scale. Guinier plots can be used to extract the radiation of gyration. Kratke plots can help distinguish between extended and compact conformations of chains such as proteins. Time 6:44.
