|Technical information (MX/PX)|
Front-end optics controlled via Oxford-Danfysik GUI.
End-station control via Blu-Ice GUI.
The Blu-Ice interface includes:
The excitation scan is useful in identifying and verifying the presence of anomalous scatterers in the sample. The energy (MAD) scans are used to select the appropriate wavelengths for anomalous dispersion experiments (optimised SAD and MAD). The MAD ‘scan mode’ in the Blu-Ice interface can be used to scan the x-ray energy against the fluorescence emitted by the sample and subsequently determine the optimal energies for MAD data collection.
Further information on running the Blu-Ice software, plus hints and tips, can be found in both the User Manual and the Remote Access Manual in the Resources webpage for this beamline.
