The purpose of this report is to discuss in a general manner the factors which must be considered in small angle x-ray scattering experimentation. It is intended primarily to assist those who wish to use this technique as an analytical tool, but who will not be greatly interested in mathematical and theoretical aspects. Various experimental considerations, such as collimation systems, monochromatization of the x-ray beam and detection of the scattered x-rays are described, especially with reference to the Kratky collimation arrangement. The effects of parasitic scattering and sample thickness on the results in a scattering investigation are indicated. Author
