This is a flexible and versatile beamline for testing new developments in optics and detector technology and for trialling new experimental techniques. The beamline provides both white and monochromatic X-rays in several operational modes.
See our Facilities and Equipment page for descriptions of the instrumentation and labs available on B16.
The B16 Test beamline works closely with the Optics and Metrology Group at Diamond.
The beamline operates in the 4 – 45 keV photon energy range and is used for the characterisation of optics, detectors and other instrumentation, and for the development of novel techniques and technologies.
Main roles for the Test beamline are:
