Diamond now hosts a new Offline SAXS User facility. Jointly bid for by Diamond and Leeds University the facility, funded by the EPSRC, will offer complementary materials science measurements to those available on I22. A contract was placed with Xenocs to bring one of their first Xeuss 3.0 Q-Zoom instruments to Diamond. The Diamond-Leeds SAXS facility (DL-SAXS) is located in a new purpose built laboratory and include Sample Environment Development facilities.
DL-SAXS has recently come through a rigorous programme of commissioning and is now in its optimization phase with users from Leeds University before offering it to the wider community. 25% of the available beamtime on the instrument will be made available via PRP for measurements and run by a dedicated technician supported by the Diamond SAXS team. Look for DL-SAXS in UAS!
The instrument has a sample chamber with a standard set of sample holders for solids, liquids and gels both for in air and under vacuum measurement.
Diamond Light Source is the UK's national synchrotron science facility, located at the Harwell Science and Innovation Campus in Oxfordshire.
