Crystallisation studies and SAXS
What is it about?
In combination with an earlier publication in J. Non Crystalline Solids this tells a story of the formation of nano-crystals in a glassy matrix upon heat treatment. The beauty doesn't lie in the sample or the results but in the fact that all text-book stuff of Guinier radii, Porod slopes, form factors, technique combinations, Porod invariants etc. is observed in a single system.
Why is it important?
The direct correlation of different theoretical X-ray scattering concepts in a real system is maybe not unique but at least pretty rare.
