Focuses on micellar solutions of the palmitoyl-lyso-phosphatidyl/water system by small angle x-ray scattering from the diluted isotropic phase up to the concentrated phase near the phase transition. Particle distance distribution for the less concentrated solution; Analysis of results based on micellar elastic bending energy.

    We have developed a method to determine the Pore Size Distribution (PSD) of porous low-k dielectric materials. The method is based on a modified version of Small Angle X-ray Scattering (SAXS). We fix the incident X-ray angle such that it is a larger angle than the total reflection critical angle...
