Typically the beam has a size of tens of microns, however using X-ray optics the beam is reduced to a size of 1-5 μm. This means micron sized crystals can be investigated.
I22 is a multifunction SAXS/WAXS beamline for the physical and life sciences. Small-angle scattering provides essential information on the structure and dynamics of large molecular assemblies in low ordered environments. Working in both transmission and grazing incidence with full and microfocus beam I22 provides a working platform for studying the full range of soft matetr systems.More information
MIRIAM (Multimode InfraRed Imaging And Microspectroscopy) provides a brilliant and versatile microprobe for high resolution imaging of molecular structures as well as high sensitivity vibrational spectroscopy via FTIR up to the THz range. Experiments span from biomedical applications to physical-chemical researches.More information
DIAD will be the a dual beam instrument capable of imaging and diffraction at the same time at the micron scale. The beamline will enable in-situ experiments aiming to resolve the 3D microstructure (via imaging) and phase constitution/strain state of material (via diffraction) in quasi-simultaneously matter with switching times of a few Hz between analysis techniques.More information
VMXm is a micro/nanofocus MX beamline aimed at atomic structure determination in cases where the production of significant quantities of protein material and crystals is problematic.More information
Variable focus from 5 to 100 microns, high throughput and highly automated beamline for optimised MAD and SAD experiments.More information
High throughput variable microfocus beamline for optimised MAD and SAD experiments on crystals down a few microns in size.More information
The Versatile Macromolecular X-tallography in-situ (VMXi) beamline will be an entirely automated facility for characterisation of, and data collection directly from, crystallisation experiments in situ.More information
µX-ray absorption spectroscopy, µX-ray fluorescence imaging and µdiffraction using high-brightness focused X-ray beam. Other techniques available include X-ray Excited Optical Luminescence (XEOL), X-ray Fluorescence Tomography, Fluorescence ReflEXAFS, Differential Phase Contrast Imaging.More information
