Beamline 12-ID-C,D: SAXS/WAXS and Surface Scattering

X-ray Science Division, APS
Chemistry, Physics, Materials Science

Description

The 12-ID-C beamline has capabilities for SAXS, WAXS, ASAXS, GISAXS, AGISAXS, and TRSAXS. In situ experiments are facilitated with ancillary equipment including furnaces, gas and liquid flow systems, stop-flow, high pressure, and burners. At 12-ID-D, surface scattering and diffraction experiments are supported on a 8-circle goniometer.

 

Supported Techniques

  • Small-angle x-ray scattering
  • Grazing incidence small-angle scattering
  • Wide-angle x-ray scattering
  • Surface diffraction

Beamline Controls and Data Acquisition

. 12-ID-C uses Linux workstation running SPEC, Windows XP, EPICS applications, and SAXS analysis. 12-ID-D uses Linux workstation running SPEC (non EPICS version) and EPICS applications.

Detectors

  • Ionization chambers
  • Oxford Cyberstar
