Beamline I15 is dedicated to X-ray powder 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 and collimated down to ≤20 µm can penetrate into complex sample assemblies permitting detailed mapping of structural order or disorder, chemical fingerprinting or structure determination.
We have changed our DAC policy and split it into DAC loaning only and DAC loaning + sample loading. Please familiarize yourself with the details under the DAC Policy tab here.
I15 has acquired a micromanipulator 'Axis Pro' from MicroSupport Co. It is now available to users. Watch this video from MicroSupport to see the loading of a diamond-anvil cell with the Axis Pro. It is amazing!!
