Beamline 16-BM-D: Sector 16 - Bending Magnet Beamline

HP-CAT
Materials Science, GeoScience, Chemistry, Physics

Description

This beamline is dedicated to micro-x-ray diffraction (μ-XRD) and x-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS) research of matters under high pressure, typically contained in a diamond anvil cell (DAC). The setup is flexible for various experimental conditions including ambient, resistive heating, and cryogenic cooling environments.

 

Supported Techniques

  • Powder angular dispersive x-ray diffraction
  • X-ray absorption near-edge structure
  • Single-crystal diffraction
  • High-pressure diamond anvil cell

Beamline Controls and Data Acquisition

Windows XP and Linux workstations; EPICS based applications on VME-based electronics. Display and control: MEDM, Java, and IDL based software.
