Beamline 15-ID-B,C,D: Sector 15 - Insertion Device Beamline

X-ray Science Division, APS
Materials Science, Chemistry

Description

Beamline 15-ID has three experimental stations dedicated to static and dynamic condensed matter chemistry and materials science. The stations accommodate advanced small molecule diffraction, air/liquid and liquid/liquid interfacial scattering, and ultra-small angle x-ray scattering (USAXS).

 

Supported Techniques

  • Single-crystal diffraction
  • Anomalous and resonant scattering (hard x-ray)
  • Wide-angle x-ray scattering
  • Microdiffraction
  • Liquid surface diffraction
  • Small-angle x-ray scattering
  • High-pressure diamond anvil cell

Beamline Controls and Data Acquisition

EPICS, SPEC, and APEXII in addition to IDL, Windows XP, Solaris, and Linux OS with tools such as MEDM and VME-and NIM-based electronics.

Detectors

  • Pilatus 100k
  • APEXII CCD detector (62 x 62 mm, 15um/pixel)
  • Ionization chambers
  • Avalanche photodiodes
