IN 2012/3 IMBL AIMS TO OFFER THE FOLLOWING 3 OPERATING MODES:
PREPARING FOR BEAMTIME APPLICATIONS
FAR-IR & HIGH RESOLUTION
An Enclosive Flow Cooling (EFC) cell with multipass optics that will enable the study of gases at cryogenic temperatures & clusters. The EFC cell is equipped with KBr, PEand TPX windows, and thus, can cover a wide spectral range from 10 cm-1 to energies greater than 4000 cm-1; it can achieve path lengths less than 20 m. Presently operating at temperatures ranging from100-300 K, the EFC cell is also designed to run at liquid helium temperature. The cell has been adapted to operate in the far-IR spectral region.
MX1: MACROMOLECULAR CRYSTALLOGRAPHY BEAMLINE
The detectors which are currently available are:
HIGH PRESSURE AND TEMPERATURE CONDITIONS AVAILABLE AT THE POWDER DIFFRACTION BEAMLINE
Capillary Flow Cell Experiments
The maximum pressure at the beamline in a capillary is 2 MPa (thick-walled capillaries required as above) unless prior agreement is reached with beamline staff.
For experiments which use > 5% Hydrogen gas, the maximum temperature which can be used is 500°C.
Capillary Furnace Experiments
The maximum operating temperature is 1100°C for quartz capillaries
The maximum operating temperature is 1350°C for sapphire capillaries.
