Beamline 2-ID-D: Microfluorescence and Microdiffraction

X-ray Science Division, APS
Life Sciences, Materials Science, Environmental Science, GeoScience

Description

Beamline 2-ID-D is devoted to sub-micron high-resolution x-ray imaging studies. Most work on the beamline centers on microfluorescence, microdiffraction, and micro-XANES analysis of a variety of materials.

 

Supported Techniques

  • Microfluorescence (hard x-ray)
  • Microdiffraction
  • Micro x-ray absorption fine structure

Beamline Controls and Data Acquisition

The beamline is run with linux and Window workstations using various EPICS-based applications.

Detectors

  • Silicon drift detector
  • Ionization chambers
  • Large area CCD
  • NaI scintillation detector
  • X-ray alignment camera

Additional Equipment

  • Newport kappa diffractometer
  • Optical table with 6 degrees of freedom
  • Scanning microprobes
