We have a wide range of resources available to our industrial users. These include:
A wide range of beamlines covering a variety of XAS techniques and experimental conditions.
An extensive range of dedicated sample environments:
Support and on-site training during experimental time from Diamond's experts in Spectroscopy.
Dedicated laboratories (for wet, dry and characterisation) equipped with sample preparation equipment:
Pellets Press - to enable users to create pellets from powdered material. This makes the sample area much more compressed, allowing for richer data acquisition.
Drying Oven - for sample preparation, to ensure the optimal conditions ahead of your experiment.
Centrifuge - used to separate fluids, gases or liquids based on density. This separation helps when interpreting molecular spectra using spectroscopy.
Glove box - two are available in the spectroscopy labs (dry but solvent tolerant Ar, and O2-free but water tolerant.)
Fume hoods - these will limit your exposure to hazardous or toxic fumes, vapors or dusts. The wet labs have two fume hoods each and a deionised water supply.
Cryo-microtome - allows you to cut extremely thin slices of material, to optimise your spectroscopy experiments.
Streamlined protocols for the safe storage and sample changeover of radioactive materials.
Training - including our annual XAS workshop for new XAS users and a summer school providing training on the full range of Diamond research techniques.
