New commissioned beamlines on the SRS

CCLRC Daresbury Laboratory : 29 November, 2004  (New Product)
MPW6.2 is one of the most recently commissioned beamlines on the SRS and has been optimised to be particularly powerful for the investigation of structural changes during time-resolved materials processing experiments.
MPW6.2 is one of the most recently commissioned beamlines on the SRS and has been optimised to be particularly powerful for the investigation of structural changes during time-resolved materials processing experiments. The principal characteristics of the beamline are:

High incident photon flux at the sample position
Continuous energy tunablilty in the range 5 keV to 18 keV
A pair of synchronised state-of-the-art 1-dimensional detectors
Data collection rates into the microsecond region
Two primary experimental configurations:
Powder diffraction (60 degrees in 2 )
Combined wide-angle X-ray scattering and small-angle X-ray scattering
Maximum SAXS resolution 80nm (at 9 keV energy-dependent)
Various sample environments available:
DSC and capillary hot stage, stopped-flow mixer, static liquid cells, multi-sample changer, heating and cooling water baths
Capillary and flat-plate furnaces, hot air heater
User-supplied sample environments can be accommodated
The beamline also benefits from an advanced GUI-based integrated software control system for data acquisition and sample environment manipulation.

A wide range of experiments have been successfully performed on the station since it opened for general use in 2003. It is one of the most over-subscribed beamlines on the SRS, further demonstrating the powerful nature of the combined techniques approach to materials characterisation problem solving.
