Abstract : This report summarizes construction, assembly and performance of instrumentation for small-angle X-ray scattering experiments on critically opalescent binary liquid mixtures and on the alpha-beta quartz transition. X-ray sample cells, X-ray camera and automation equipment, and temperature measurement techniques are described. The phase diagram of the nitrobenzene-n-heptane system is reported. Some very preliminary small-angle light-scattering data for the 2,6-dimethylpyridine- water system are shown. (Author)
