Leaders in Synchrotron beamline systems and components

One of the three MX beamlines installed at Diamond Light Source. These employed more conventional vertically diffracting cryocooled monochromators. The EPICS control system was included in the scope of supply

In 1997, as part of the Synchrotron division of Oxford Instruments plc, we built and installed the Rossendorf CRG beamline (ROBL) at the ESRF

BioMax during installation at MAX IV. This beam line is ‘state-of-the-art’ but is designed to deliver a small but variable focal spot at the sample (down to ~20µm). It is installed on an IVU and employs a liquid nitrogen cryo-cooled horizontally diffracting monochromator along with vertical and horizontally focusing mirrors.

PX1 Beamline at the Australian Synchrotron; one of seven beamlines installed at this facility by  FMB Oxford and FMB Berlin between 2006 – 2008.

The Nano beamline installed at ANKA. This beam operates on a mini-undulator and there are four mirror systems to designed to offer an intermediate secondary source to deliver a smaller spot at the sample position in one of its many modes of operation. There is a cryocooled vertically diffracting monochromator and a separate multi-layer monochromator.

The KCSR PHASE beamline exploits the full potential of the combined range from FMB Oxford and Berlin with one mirror incorporated into the front end to take maximum advantage of the flux from this bending magnet source. The full operating EPICS software and the EPS were included in the scope of supply.

Hard X-ray Nanoprobe (HXN) beamline at NSLS-II. This beam line also exploits a cryo-cooled horizontally diffracting monochromator. Secondary Bremsstrahlung shielding can be seen installed after the horizontally re-focusing mirror system. Further downstream a compound refractive lens system provides variable vertical focusing.
