This project is focused on SAXS measurements to study structuring of fibrilar systems under flow, such as 3D printing, electro spinning and fibre spinning. The project is in the framework of the feasibility study on the ForMAX beamline at MAX IV. Controlled alignment of for example cellulose nanofibrils is of high interest, since their mechanical properties are highly anisotropic. The work will involve development of suitable sample environments aiming towards in-situ studies.
Treesearch aims at creating a national platform to support the research on new materials from the forest. Research projects conducted within Treesearch research areas and the researchers who are active in these projects are welcome to join the platform.
