National Synchrotron Light Source Seminar

"The HIgh Energy X-ray Radiation Applications at ESRF"

Presented by Veijo Honkimaki, European Synchrotron Radiation Facility, France

Thursday, March 13, 2008, 1:30 pm — Seminar Room, Bldg. 725

The beamlines ID15A and ID15B at ESRF are devoted for very high energy x-ray radiation up to several hundred keV. At present the main research areas at these beamlines are engineering materials research and studies of surfaces and buried interfaces. However, the concept of the beamlines is to keep scientific options open and retain flexibility to exploit the unique properties of hard x-rays: large penetration depth, large Ewald spheres, very high momentum transfer, large extinction lengths and small radiation doses. These properties are discussed and many examples are given using the core techniques at the beamlines: energy dispersive diffraction, micro-tomography, surface/interface micro-diffraction, high resolution inelastic scattering and diffraction with area detectors.
