Confocal setup

samples include ancient papyrus and fishscale


The simultaneous measurement of SAXS, EXAFS and WAXS has been possible on BM26A since 2014. Typical SAXS minimum q = 0.001Å-1 at 25 keV (Palladium edge). SAXS scans can be collected in 30s time frames and EXAFS frames in under five minutes.

Utrecht University - ESRF collaboration

Satu Korhonen and Andrew Beale (Utrecht University, Bert Weckhuysen group) prepare with Mark Newton (ESRF) an in-situ catalysis experiment. Mark adjusts the equipment for combined EXAFS/infrared measurements.
