BEAMLINE GUIDE
EMBL P13


European Molecular Biology Laboratory
Hamburg, Germany

P13 offers micro-beam conditions with a beam-size of 30 x 20 micron2 (H x V) and divergence below 0.15 mrad. Typical crystal life-times are <1 min. for the focused beam (5 x 1012 ph/sec at 12 keV). By adjusting the shape of the adaptive KB-mirrors, the full beam can be defocused to a size of 150 x 70 micron2 at the sample position. Apertures can be used to collimate the beam down to a diameter of 10 micron. 1
