ID21 - X-ray Microscopy Beamline

Synopsis

ID21 will restart in 2020 focusing its activity on the in-vacuum scanning X-ray microscope (SXM). This microscope should offer a beam of ~ 0.3µm Vx0.7µm H for 2D µXRF (elemental maps) and µXANES (chemical speciation in 0D, 1D and 2D) in the energy range 2-9 keV. An additional nanoscope is currently under design, that should be commissionned in 2010.
Status:  open
