Beamline Name 14-ID-B
Primary Contact: NameVukica Srajer
Secondary Contact: NameRobert Henning
Owner/OperatorBioCARS, CARS, The University of Chicago
%Time Available (general use)100
Experiments DetailsDual in-line undulators (U23 and U27). Supports Laue and monochromatic time-resolved crystallography and time-resolved SAXS/WAXS. Laser facility (ps and ns lasers) is available. Standard macromolecular crystallography is also supported. Biohazardous samples at BSL-2 and BSL-3 levels are supported. Flux listed below is for monochromatic beam at 12keV. In pink beam operation flux is 3x10^10 photons/100ps X-ray pulse in APS hybrid mode. For polychromatic solution scattering accessible q range: 0.02-3.5 A-1.
