Beamline Name ID29
Primary Contact: NameDaniele de Sanctis
Secondary Contact: NameGordon Leonard
Owner/OperatorESRF Strctural Biology Group
Special CapabilitiesAbsorption Edges, High Intensity
Special Capabilities DetailsID29 is intended for high intensity, high energy resolution MAD and SAD measurements over a wide range of X-ray wavelengths.
Source Detailstwo complementary undulator sources - a standard U35 and an in vacuum U21
Spot Size (mm): Height0.03
Spot Size (mm): Width0.05
Monochromatorliquid nitrogen cooled channel-cut silicon monochromator
Optics DetailsDue to geometry of the channel-cut crystal, the Si(311) monochromator can only be used at energies higher than 9.6 keV.
Crystal TypeSi(111) and Si (311)
Mirrorscylindrical grazing incidence mirror bent to approximate to a toroidal curvature
Flux(PHOTONS/SEC)1 x 10^13
Flux Details
Wavelength Range (Å)0.62 - 2.1
Energy Range (keV)6 - 20
GoniometerMD2 Microdiffractometer
Goniometer DetailsMinikappa goniometer - beam is conditioned by 5 different beam defining apertures - 10 20 30 50 75 um
Sample Handling: RoboticsEMBL Grenoble Sample Changer (SC3)
Robotics: More InfoThe Sample Changer has been designed for use with SPINE standard sample holders and vials, which are loaded into the SC in baskets specifically designed for the SCs. The goniometer head that must be used in conjunction with the SCs is equipped with a SmartMagnet. This detects whether a sample is mounted on the goniometer head or not. Each indivudual SmartMagnet is tuned for operation on a particular beam-line and a goniometer head must NOT be taken from one beam-line for use on another.
