BEAMLINE GUIDE
ALS 11.3.1


The Advanced Light Source
Berkeley, CA

Beamline 11.3.1 is mounted on a regular ALS bending magnet that provides a very intense beam of monochromatic x-rays in the range of 6—17 keV (0.73 — 2 Å). The facility provides small molecule diffraction for small, single crystals which are too big for powder techniques and too small for laboratory single crystal systems. To date, the smallest crystals probed were as small as 15 x 15 x 15 mm3.1
