Welcome to 2-ID-E: Hard X-ray Microprobe Facility

The 2-ID-D/E microprobe facility operates three hard x-ray microprobes for x-ray fluorescence mapping, fluorescence spectroscopy, and microdiffraction.    Station 2-ID-D houses an x-ray fluorescence and a microdiffraction microprobe that operate independently. Station 2-ID-E houses an x-ray fluorescence microprobe in a side-branch geometry that operates in parallel to either of the 2-ID-D instruments.
