The Tools perspective holds a number of important functions and is the location for many of the beamline specific properties. Typically, this perspective contains rarely used options and the functionality is split in to two tabs.
The hardware tab of the Tools perspective contains some more rarely used options.
- The beamline energy can be changed and the detector moved
- The beam can be realigned
- Annealing crystals
- Washing crystals
Two further options:
- The beam centre can be re-marked on the screen (make sure any frontlight is set off)
- The rotation axis can be aligned
These should not be used unless a problem is clear (check beam position with the scintillator first (see BeamOptics) and try a realign) - the beam automatically aligns regularly during a visit and the beam centre is reviewed daily by beamline staff. The rotation axis is reviewed daily by beamline staff.
