8th June 2020: Access to MX beamlines is currently operating under new guidelines. Please read carefully.
I03 is one of five macromolecular crystallography (MX) beamlines at Diamond. I03 is a tuneable beamline with a working wavelength range of 0.6 - 2.48 Å. The standard working wavelength is 0.976 Å (12.7 keV) with a focused beam size of 90 x 30 um (FWHM). As with all the MX beamlines, I03 uses SPINE standard pins and Unipucks for cryo-cooled samples.
I03 can provide containment measures for experiments involving biological agents in Hazard Groups 2 and 3.
Please note there are some adjustments required for Data Processing from i03 Eiger Data from mid 2021.
