The Hard X-ray nanoprobe beamline (I14) is a dedicated facility for nanoscale microscopy.
The nanoprobe provides a flexible end station, with a beam size of 50 nm, optimised for scanning X-ray fluorescence, X-ray spectroscopy, and diffraction.
To maximise the distance from the focusing optic to the sample, the beamline extends beyond the main building to a distance of approximately 185m and is housed in an external building alongside the eBIC and ePSIC national electron microscopy facilities.
I14 provides a state-of-the-art facility in which a focused x-ray spot is positioned or scanned over a specimen. The central theme of the beamline is the ability to obtain structural and chemically-specific information on a full range of materials (inorganic/organic) under both static and real (e.g. wet, heated, in-situ strain) conditions.
Diamond Light Source is the UK's national synchrotron science facility, located at the Harwell Science and Innovation Campus in Oxfordshire.
