The power of synchrotron X-ray powder diffraction
Synchrotron radiation facilities have traditionally been accessible only to expert scientists due to their intrinsic complexity and are characterised by long waiting times not compatible with the speed requested by private companies. Excelsus Structural Solutions SPRL (ESS) is a spin-off company of the Paul Scherrer Institute founded in March 2012 with the mission of providing industry with fast and easy access to SR-XRDP, including data interpretation and design of non-standard experiments.
