Technical Seminars

A series of Technical Seminars related to the APS Upgrade will be presented on the second and fourth Wednesdays during the summer months. The seminar topics were chosen to be of broad interest to the APS User Community with the purpose of providing the latest thinking on Upgrade-related topics. In addition, this seminar series also provides a forum for User feedback and comment on the direction and scope of these topics.

Bent Crystal Laue Analyzer (BCLA) for Copper Speciation Studies and Recent Progress on Optics Testing at 1-BM

Speaker: Naresh Kujala, Advanced Photon Source
XSD Presentation
401/A1100 @ 11:00 AM
View Description
In this talk, I will present the design of Bent Crystal Laue Analyzer (BCLA) detection system for copper speciation in biological samples. The analyzer has energy resolution of 14 eV@ Cu Kα line and it has notable advantages to resolve the Cu Kα1, Kα2, and Kβ fluorescence lines while offering a very low background. The designed BCLA will be used on copper speciation studies in biological samples with specific applications to cancer biology. I will also present newly reconfigured optics and detector test beamline (1-BM) at the Advanced Photon Source-Argonne National Laboratory. I will show the beamline experimental stations layout and beamline optical components. The beamline have two modes of operations: White beam mode and monochromatic beam mode. Here I will give an overview of the recent progress on optics testing including the testing of Kirkpatrick-Baez (K-B) mirrors and measurement of focus spot; X-ray microscopy experimental setup for investigating the performance of Multilayer Laue lens (MLL) and Fresnel Zone Plates; Silicon Bent Crystal Analyzer testing experimental setup; and Talbot x-ray grating Interferometry for measurement of coherence lengths. I will also discuss x-ray Topography for crystal studies. Finally, I will present the optical ray-tracing studies for test set-ups that take advantage of the polarization variation of the bending magnet radiation above and below the horizontal plane of the 1-BM beamline.
