Experiments DetailsBL2-3 is a bending magnet side station dedicated to X-ray imaging and micro X-ray absorption spectroscopy as well as micro diffraction of biological, material, and geological samples. A Kirkpatrick-Baez mirrors system is used to achieve microfocus with a beam size of ~ 2 x 2 microns. BL2-3 is equipped with a Vortex Si drift detector and ionization chambers. Sample positions are controlled with submicron accuracy by two different sample stages depending on the experiment. BL2-3 is ideal for obtaining elemental maps of small samples (~10 microns to 25 mm) as well as performing spectroscopy on selected points in the sample (~2 x 2 microns).
