The Small-K Advanced Diffractometer, SKADI, is a versatile small-angle neutron scattering (SANS) instrument, which will enable scientists to perform a wide range of investigations on topics requiring small scattering angles to access long length scales. The scientific areas targeted by SKADI include investigations of smart materials, biological and medical research, magnetic materials and materials for energy storage, as well as experiments on nanomaterials and nanocomposites or colloidal systems. These experiments promise a high potential impact on science and society. To maximize the societal applicability of these studies SKADI is designed to accommodate in-situ measurements with custom-made sample environments to provide "real-world" conditions.
