Welcome to Sector 1 of the Advanced Photon Source (APS) located at Argonne National Laboratory (ANL). The Sector 1 beamlines are operated by the Materials Physics & Engineering Group (MPE) of the APS X-ray Science Division (XSD).

Sector 1 consists of the 1-ID and 1-BM beamlines, and 80% of the available beamtime is accessible to outside users through the General User program. The main programs pursued at Sector 1 are described below.

1-ID is dedicated to providing and using brilliant, high-energy x-ray beams (50-150 keV) for the following activities:

  • Coupled high-energy small- and wide-angle scattering (HE-SAXS/WAXS)
  • High-energy diffraction microscopy (HEDM)Sector 1 General Layout
  • Stress/strain/texture studies
  • Pair-distribution function (PDF) measurements
  • High-energy fluorescence

Please note: The area detector powder diffraction program formerly at 1-BM has relocated to 17-BM.
