APS-U Sector 9-ID

Sector 9-ID is the future home of  the APS-U feature beamline CSSI. The program in nanoscale structure, kinetics and dynamics will host 2 instruments supporting 3 techniques:

  • Coherent Surface Scattering Imaging (CSSI)
  • Grazing-Incidence X-ray Scattering (GISAXS and GIWAXS)
  • Grazing-Incidence X-Ray Photon Correlation Spectroscopy (GI-XPCS)

Projected specifications for the new 9-ID-D beamline are in the 9-ID-D beamline directory entry. More information about the new beamline is available from the CSSI Townhall Meeting recording (the required registration is still open past the deadline). 9-ID will be unavailable until APS-U commissioning starts in 2024.


Hybrid First Experiments Workshop for Coherent Surface Scattering Imaging (CSSI) Beamline 9ID at the APS -- including Grazing Incidence Small- and Wide-Angle X-Ray Scattering (GISAXS/GIWAXS) and Grazing Incidence X-Ray Photon Correlation Spectroscopy (GI-XPCS) -- will take place August 1-2, 2023 at the APS. Registration accepted through July 17, 2023.

2023 APS/CNM Users Meeting hosted APS Workshop 4: "Materials Discovery with Grazing-Incidence X-Ray Photon Correlation Spectroscopy," May 1 and 2, 2023. 

APS Sector 9-ID 

APS Sector 9-ID suspended operations effective August 1, 2022, to prepare for the APS-Upgrade. 

Status update 2023.06.06: 9-ID-D Experimental enclosure is under construction.

The USAXS/SAXS/WAXS instrument has moved to a new home at beamline 20-ID-B.

The Bionanoprobe instrument has moved to a new home at beamline 2-ID-D.
