Diamond Light Source
The high photon flux offered by the beamline allows crystal structure studies of samples that are too weakly scattering, due to either their size or the complexity of their underlying molecular structure, to be successfully carried out using any other X-ray source. The photon energy can be tuned in the range 5 keV to 25 keV (corresponding to a wavelength range of 2.5 Å to 0.5 Å) with a bandpass of 10-4. This energy tuning capability, which is unique to synchrotron sources, allows crystallographic studies using anomalous dispersion techniques. The narrow bandpass provides sufficient resolution to discriminate specific oxidation states of heavy elements.
We recommend the following tools for their compatibility and ease-of-use.
