Welcome to the exciting world of SAXS

  • “SAXS excites”, the International SAXS Symposium 2019, will not only give an insight into the diversity of SAXS and its applications, it will also be your platform to reflect on current trends, foster discussions, and exchange ideas for the future.

    In 2017 the international symposium “SAXS excites” was held for the first time and hosted more than 100 participants from all over the world. World-renowned keynote speakers, talks, and a great poster session contributed to an exclusive event. We aim to continuously expand the SAXS family to encourage multidiscipline cooperation and open an exchange of views between renowned scientists, young scientists, and industry.

  • Your benefits

    • Globally recognized key scientists, young scientists, and attendees from complementary fields have the chance to share their thoughts and ideas.
    • The event is a unique opportunity to distribute the benefits of SAXS to related fields.
    • Establishing contacts, broadening your horizon, and discussing the future of SAXS will be at the center of our symposium.

Become an active part of this two-day symposium and draw inspiration for your future work.

Event Date: 24 to 25 September, 2019

  • SAXS (Small Angle X-Ray Structure) is one of the leading technologies for the analysis of crystalline-, molecular-, and nanostructures. For a long time, SAXS was regarded as pure basic research only, but nowadays it is an established method in modern analytics and applied research in the industry.

    SAXS contributes significantly to the knowledge and understanding of the stability and mode of action of biomolecules, e.g. proteins, enzymes and antibodies, and thus the development of new active ingredients (APIs) and medicaments in solid and liquid formulations. Antibiotic resistance and the increasing number of allergies are only two key points which underline the importance of SAXS as an analytical method.

    A further future field for the SAXS method is the control and analysis of nanoparticles during production. Today, nanoparticles are the norm in many everyday products, e.g. in cosmetics, detergents, clothing and solar cells. They give the different products their special characteristics. There are many more future-oriented applications using SAXS as a leading technology.
