ID24-ED is en energy dispersive X-ray Absorption beamline optimized for time resolved experiments under extreme conditions of pressure temperature and magnetic field. The energy dispersive geometry allows for temporal resolution down to the single bunch (100 ps). Two main target experiments are developed on the beamline: laser-induced dynamic compression and pulsed magnetic field.
Status:  open
