The high brilliance laboratory small angle X-ray scattering instrument GALAXI, which
is operated by JCNS, Forschungszentrum Jülich, permits the investigation of chemical
correlations in bulk materials or of structures deposited on a surface at nanometre
and mesoscopic length scales. The instrument is capable to perform GISAXS experiments
in reflection at grazing incidence as well as SAXS experiments in transmission geometry.
The X-ray flux on sample is comparable or higher than the one obtained at a comparable
beamline at a second generation synchrotron radiation source.
