Source Typebending magnet
Spot Size (mm): WidthAutomated slits allow the beam size to be match to the crystal size or reduced to minimize spatial overlap of diffraction spots.
Crystal TypeSi (111)
Flux(PHOTONS/SEC)1.1 x 10^10
Flux DetailsFlux measured in 1997 corresponds to NSLS x-ray ring emittance of 90 nm-rad; NSLS x-ray ring emittance has improved to 45 nm-rad, and this has resulted in about a factor of 2 increase in the deliv
