The white X-ray beam produced by the machine is delivered to ID23-1 by an undulator U35 through the diamon Front End window. Optic devices located downstream in the optic hutch (also driven by the Personal Safety System) prepare the monochromatic beam provided at the sample in the experimental hutch.
