      Beamline Description
      The XFP beamline is a partner beamline operated by the Case Western Reserve University Center for Synchrotron Biosciences. The beamline delivers high flux density broadband X-rays to several sample exposure positions on separate tables in the experimental hutch. With adjustable focusing of the toroidal mirror tangential radius and distance from the source, the beam size can be tailored to a variety of samples. Sample environments available this cycle are expected to include liquid flow for both steady-state and time-resolved experiments and a multiple-sample holder for frozen state high-throughput experiments.
