Beamline XRD1@Elettra

XRD1 beamline is a multipurpose X ray diffraction beamline. The beamline source is a multipole wiggler producing an intense beam in the 4-21 keV energy range where a tunable double crystal monochromator allows for a rapid selection and optimization of the anomalous scattering condition. XRD1 allows for both macromolecular and small-molecules single-crystal crystal X ray diffraction crystallographic. Furthermore, it powder diffraction, also at variable temperature and grazing-incidence diffraction measurement, are possible. A laser-based sample alignment facility together with an helium-path for low energies measurements are available for grazing-incidence condition.
