Beamline I12-JEEP (Joint Engineering, Environmental, and Processing) is a high energy X-ray beamline for imaging, diffraction and scattering, which operates at energies of 53-150 keV.
I12 was built to be suitable for experiments, which utilize:
At I12 you can perform a range of experimental techniques:
General: All techniques use high-energy X-rays able to penetrate large samples or sample environments. Therefore sample preparation is simple and processes can often be studied under real-world conditions. For very high resolution in real space (< 2 µm) or in reciprocal space, lower X-ray energy techniques on other beamlines are more suitable.
I12 can accommodate complex sample environments (chemical, mechanical and electrical processing equipment, engineering machinery, all kinds of experimental apparatuses), which the users can bring and install for their beamtime. We accommodate small and medium sized sample environments in EH1 and large ones in EH2.
The beamline has two in-line experimental hutches:
Experimental Hutch One (EH1) is inside the Diamond Experimental Hall. It provides a high intensity X-ray beam at a distance of around 50m from the x-ray source. EH1 is configured for experiments with small- and medium-sized samples and sample environments. A core feature is a sample table which can be configured to suit different sizes of experimental equipment and can be used for all available experimental techniques.
Experimental Hutch Two (EH2) is in an external building outside the Experimental Hall, which is in-line with EH1. It provides a space for large or complex experiments in physics, material science, geology, engineering and processing. Equipment setup and preparation for an experiment in EH2 can be carried out without interrupting ongoing experiments in EH1, allowing longer setup times of user-provided equipment.
