Monochromator B21 will be upgrading its DMM substrates to new Zeiss double crystal multi-layers coated by Rigaku. We expect a 30% gain in flux with optimical microroughness and d-spacing.
Detector B21 will be installing an in vacuum Eiger detector. We are scheduled to take possession of the detector in September 2018. A new dual detector camera will be made to give a q-range of 0.002 to 0.98 inverse Angstroms. Installation will proceed over the next three shutdows.
MALS SEC-SAXS experiments will have the option for integrated MALS measurements. MALS provides an independent assessement of mass. Plans are currently in place for simultaneous measurements allowing for USAS measurements of large particles.
