The μ15 project will transform the I15 extreme conditions beamline into a dedicated high energy microfocus scattering beamline. The beamline will be completely redeveloped to offer the high flux, stable, microfocus X-rays necessary for operando diffraction mapping as well as single crystal techniques for diffuse scattering and 3D-ΔPDF studies. The high energies available (35-100 keV) make it ideally suited to total scattering and pair distribution function experiments, including anomalous scattering measurements. The combination of a microfocus beam (~5 μm) and high-speed mapping stages will allow for fast collection of XRD- and PDF-computed tomography data to explore spatially resolved phases within samples and experiments.
The μ15 project is synergistically paired with the NExCUBe project (Nanofocus Extreme Conditions Undulator Beamline) which will offer nanofocus X-ray beams for single crystal and powder diffraction.
The high energy microfocus scattering beamline μ15 will offer a range of detectors will allow experiments to run in high-speed and high-resolution modes. It will deliver both the hardware and software to enable users to perform challenging operando experiments with high spatial and temporal resolution and explore the data while the experiment is running. μ15 will be a transformative instrument for researchers from diverse fields such as materials chemistry, solid-state physics, environmental science and pharmaceuticals.
