Figure 1
(a) Sketch of the micropipette sample environment (top view) on a glass slide. The sample (green) is held by micropipettes with 30° tilted tips, inserted into the sample solution. The droplet is stabilized by a hydrophobic PTFE pattern, or a mini pap pen coating on the supporting glass slide. (b) Cross-sectional view of the sample environment with mineral oil engulfing the aqueous solution to prevent evaporation. The X-ray beam traverses both the thin mineral oil film and the water droplet with the sample. No window materials are involved.
