Small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) is often used to study porous and aggregated fractal materials. Typically whenqis small or when large primary-beam intensities are required, the small-angle geometry employed introduces infinite-slit-height smearing into the experimental data. Herein, simple derivations for infinite-slit-height-smeared SAXS from porous surface and mass fractals are presented, including an approximation for aggregated mass fractals. The models allow rapid analysis of
