USAXS Sample Holders for solid samples

For solid samples we provide a multiposition sample holder, basically a large plate with number of holes (up to 30 can be used at any time).
The samples are taped using standard (Scotch, Kapton) tape to this plate and stepping motors can programmatically position samples in the beam with precision about 10 microns. Samples in forms of foils and powders (mounted between the two layers of tape) are usually measured with this setup. Two sample holders are available to expedite sample changes.
