Sectors 33 and 34: Surface Scattering and Microdiffraction Group

The advanced X-Ray research facilities developed in Sectors 33 and 34 at the Advanced Photon Source (APS) arose from a successful collaboration between scientists from the University of Illinois Material Research Laboratory, the Oak Ridge National Lab, the National Institute of Standards & Technology, and UOP LLC. These facilities support forefront research in material science and condensed material physics, and are now a part of the APS Surface Scattering & Microdiffraction Group in the X-Ray Science Division. Access to these advanced research capabilities is arranged to qualified outside investigators through the APS General User Program.
