I15 Extreme Conditions Beamline

The Extreme Conditions beamline, I15, is dedicated to X-ray powder and single-crystal diffraction experiments at extreme pressures and temperatures. Research topics include fundamental Physics and Chemistry, Earth and Planetary Science as well as Materials Science and Engineering.

The beamline provides monochromatic high-energy X-rays from 20 to 80 keV. These X-rays focussed or collimated down to 10-70 µm can penetrate complex sample assemblies permitting detailed mapping of structural order or disorder, structure determination and chemical fingerprinting.

The I15 User Meeting 2024

The Extreme Conditions beamline will be hosting its User Meeting at Diamond Light Source on Monday 19th and Tuesday 20th of August 2024.

The event will:

  • Feature both invited and contributed speakers as well as a poster session.
  • Provide the Extreme Conditions user community with the opportunity to meet and exchange ideas.
  • Give an overview over current and near future capabilities on I15 and the opportunity to discuss user expectations and wishes.
