Beamline 10-ID-B: Sector 10 - Insertion Device Beamline

MR-CAT
Materials Science, Environmental Science, Chemistry

Description

This beamline specializes in x-ray absorption spectroscopy, microfluorescence, and mapping. It also has the capability to perform scattering and reflectivity measurements. The bulk of our scientific program is in materials science and environmental research. Radioactive materials can be routinely handled.
