Beamline 14-ID-B: Sector 14 - Insertion Device Beamline

BioCARS
Life Sciences, Materials Science, Physics, Chemistry

Description

The 14-ID is an insertion device beamline with two in-line undulators (U23 and U27). It supports Laue and time-resolved crystallography, as well as time-resolved solution scattering (simultaneous SAXS/WAXS, q range 0.02-2.5 A-1). Both ns and ps pulsed lasers are available. The ID-B station is embedded in BioCARS biohazards facility, suitable for handling biohazards at the BSL2 and BSL3 levels.  

 

Supported Techniques

  • Time-resolved crystallography
  • Time-resolved x-ray scattering
  • Laue crystallography
  • Wide-angle x-ray scattering
  • Biohazards at the BSL2/3 level
  • Macromolecular crystallography

Beamline Controls and Data Acquisition
