This page provides links to the (scattering-relevant) materials properties for a variety of materials. If a material is not listed, you can calculate its properties using the equations provided elsewhere on the site, or can try to find software that will do the calculation for you.
- Benzene C6H6
- Polystyrene (C8H8)n
- polyethylene oxide, PEO (C2nH4n+2On+1)
- P3HT (C10H14S)n
- Mylar, PET (C10H8O4)n
Calibration standards are materials whose scattering patterns are well-known and well-defined. Thus, they can be used to calibrate an instrument; in particular to determine the sample-to-detector distance based on a scattering ring with a known q-value.
- Silver behenate, AgBH (AgC22H43O2)
- Lanthanum boride, LaB6 (LaB6)
- Cerium oxide (CeO2)
- Sucrose (C12H22O11)
