Hard X-ray MicroAnalysis (HXMA) 06ID-1


The Hard X-ray Micro-Analysis (HXMA) beamline at CLS 06ID-1 is a multipurpose hard X-ray beamline, based on a 63 pole superconducting wiggler. The HXMA has been designed to provide the community with XAFS, and diffraction/scattering capabilities.

The primary beamline optics include a 1.2 m water-cooled silicon collimating mirror (seperate Rh and Pt coating stripes), a liquid nitrogren cooled double crystal monochromator (Kohzu CMJ-1) housing two crystal pairs [Si (111) and Si (220)], and a 1.15 m long water-cooled silicon toroidal focusing mirror (separate Rh and Pt coating stripes). These mirrors are equipped with dynamical meridian benders.
