Excillum MetalJet to be installed at University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) at the BioPACIFIC program
The NSF BioPACIFIC MIP is aiming to conduct research on non-petroleum-based monomers and synthetic chemistry for controlled polymer synthesis. In order to do so, they are providing access to advanced instrumentation amongst other services. Recently, UCSB purchased an Excillum MetalJet D2+ to build a unique state-of-the-art small angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) instrumentation. The MetalJet is paired with X-ray optics from AXO (Dresden) and Eiger2 R 4M from Dectris.
Dr. Youli Li will primarily be designing and using the SAXS instrument for the BioPACIFIC center. He says:
We are pleased that Excillum has joined as an industrial partner of BioPacific, a newly launched NSF Materials Innovation Platform jointly run by UCSB and UCLA. We have chosen the Excillum MetalJet D2+ to build our platform SAXS/WAXS instrument to provide the highest beam brightness available in the laboratory environment to our research community. We look forward to working with Excillum to realize this capability in the near future.”
At Excillum we are looking forward to growing our university partnership with UCSB and continuing to contribute to the SAXS community.
