Small-angle X-ray scattering analysis made easy Particle size distribution analysis EasySAXS is a stand-alone, easy-to-use software package for the automated analysis of small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) data from samples containing nanoparticles (such as nanopowders, nanoparticle dispersions and nanocomposites) and from porous materials. It reads in experimental data files, performs background correction, estimates particle / pore size distributions, and the surface-to-volume ratio of spherical particles. Instrumental broadening effects are taken into account. In the analysis no prior assumption about the shape of the size distribution curve is made. Complex, multimodal size distributions may thus also be revealed.
