Nanoparticles (NP) are an interesting material class, they show a wide variety of properties such as luminescence, super-paramagnetism and plasmon resonance for example. Most of these properties depend on the size and/or form of the NP, therefore it is very important to synthesize monodisperse and uniform NP. For the ability to tune the size and/or form of the NP it would be very beneficial to understand the nucleation and growth kinetics. To investigate this we developed an in-situ SAXS setup.
