Experimental Station 1-5

Beam line 1-5 is a bend magnet end station with a programmatic split between small angle x-ray scattering (SAXS), wide angle x-ray scattering (WAXS), as well as simultaneous SAXS/WAXS.  BL1-5 is equipped with two dimensional Rayonix 165 CCD detector (SAXS) and Dectris Pilatus 100K (WAXS) area detectors.  The beamline is available in two standard configurations: 1- and 3-meter sample to SAXS detector distances.  The WAXS detector is capable of reaching a minimum q value of 0.12 nm-1 for either of the configurations.  It is capable of accommodating x-ray energies in the range of 8-16 keV.  There are several sample environments available including capillary cells, heated transmission stages, and a grazing incidence thin film holder.
