1-ID Home Page

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

1-ID provides brilliant, high-energy x-ray beams for a variety of scientific applications.  Approximately 80% of the available 1-ID beamtime is accessible to outside users through the General User program. Techniques available include:

  • High-energy small- and wide-angle x-ray scattering
  • High-energy diffraction microscopy (near-field, far-field and very-far-field modes)
  • High-energy x-ray tomography
  • Pair-distribution function (PDF) including resonant PDF.
  • Up to 3D imaging through use of diffracted beam apertures

All beamlines are shutdown for ~year 2023-24 for the APS Upgrade, check here for updates.
