Diamond now hosts a Offline SAXS facility. Jointly bid for by Diamond and Leeds University the facility, funded by the EPSRC, offers 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 beamline (DL-SAXS) is located in a new purpose built laboratory and includes Sample Environment Development facilities.
DL-SAXS has come through a rigorous programme of commissioning, an optimization phase with users from Leeds University and several rounds of general access. It is currently avalible for industrial and PRP access, training, and sample environment development as well as an independat access route for Leeds academics. The beamline is run by the I22 SAXS team. Look for DL-SAXS in UAS!
The Offline SAXS beamline, Xeuss 3.0, from Xenocs, has been delivered with both an Excillium Gallium MetalJet and Molybdenum Microsource options.
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.
The beamline is equiped with an Eiger R 1M for SAXS data collection. Details of each of the sample hodler and other additional samples holders can be found in the sample environment section.
Diamond Light Source is the UK's national synchrotron science facility, located at the Harwell Science and Innovation Campus in Oxfordshire.
