The objective of the Small-Angle Scattering Short Course 2013 was to raise the capabilities of the small-angle scattering (SAS) community by providing an intermediate-level course for those in need of a better understanding of SAS theory, and techniques utilized at the APS.
The SAS short course offered an overview of SAS theory, capabilities, and data reduction and analysis tools to enable the community to submit highly effective beam-time proposals and to facilitate better utilization of the resources at the APS.
The course included hands-on experiments at a selected APS small-angle x-ray scattering facility, and data reduction and evaluation.


About 25 participants listened to lecturers as well as participated in hands-on workshops in one-on-one discussion. Further two days of beam time were provided for experiments on participants samples by foru APS beamlines.
