GENERAL DESCRIPTION: BL11-3 is used for diffraction experiments using a large area detector. It is used for fast data collection when angular (Q space) resolution is not necessary. It is used for rapid screening of samples, study of texture and strain, and preliminary characterization of thin films and multi-layers. Also because of fast data collection rate, it is often used for study of kinetics of chemical reactions. It can accommodate several different types of sample stages and has a built-in motorized xyz state. The main user communities are materials science, environmental science and archaeometry.
Sample Preparation Labs: The SSRL Structural Molecular Biology (SMB) Sample Preparation Laboratories are available to users by prearrangement. To use a laboratory, users must complete laboratory training, and provide a list of all chemicals to be brought, used or stored in the Sample Preparation Laboratory. For details, contact Cynthia Patty (650-926-3925).
