SXR End Stations

SXR End Stations

The SXR access policy provides users with open access to facility owned end stations and collaborative access for end stations that are externally supported. Users are required to coordinate the equipment necessary for the proposed experiment to be feasible. Proposers that previously relied on the facility to ensure that equipment would be available for their experiments can now

  1. use equipment provided by the SXR instrument
  2. collaborate with others who can provide the equipment listed below or
  3. develop their own equipment*.
    *Note that developing equipment must include the documentation listed on the "SXR Documents" section at the top of the sidebar to the right of this page.

Pre-Mono Transmission Sample Chamber (Open Access)

Pre-mono Transmission Sample Chamber

This experimental station is before the monochromator. Samples can be introduced into the unfocused , ~1 mm in diameter, beam. Additionally, the optical pump laser can be in-coupled at this location.
