Beamline 17-ID-1

  • General Information
    • Source Type
      Canted in-vacuum undulator (IVU21) with 21 mm period, 1.5 m long. Inserted into the 17-ID low-beta short straight, the AMX IVU21 is canted outboard by 1mrad and upstream of the identical FMX IVU21 which is canted inboard by 1 mrad.

      Beamline Description
      AMX, part of the NIH-funded ABBIX construction project, is a highly automated macromolecular crystallography beamline with best in class flux among the mini-beam lines. Its capabilities overlap and complement those of the FMX micro-diffraction macromolecular crystallography with which it shares sector 17-ID.

      Technique(s)
      Macromolecular (Protein) Crystallography

      Research Types
      Macromolecular Crystallography

      Source Type
      Canted in-vacuum undulator (IVU21) with 21 mm period, 1.5 m long. Inserted into the 17-ID low-beta short straight, the AMX IVU21 is canted outboard by 1mrad and upstream of the identical FMX IVU21 which is canted inboard by 1 mrad.

      Optical System
      White beam slits, double crystal Si (111) monochromator with horizontal theta-axis, tandem flat beam deflecting silicon mirrors (Pd and Si lanes), Kirkpatrick-Baez focusing silica mirrors, Pd coated, each bent adaptively with 16 piezo actuators. Each optical element is preceded by slits and its transmitted beam is monitored by beam position monitors or retractable screens.

      Experimental Apparatus
      High-precision horizontal axis goniometer for data collection from cryogenic specimen, exchangeable with a secondary goniometer for data collection at room temperature from specimen in crystallization plates, on-axis reflective optics microscope, dynamical beam shaping slits, six-axis sample changing robot with high capacity specimen dewar, Pilatus 6M pixel-array detector framing at up to 25 Hz.

      Computer System Hardware & Software
      Pilatus processing unit for Bragg spot finding and local data buffering; high speed network to transmit data to a central compute cluster and disk farm for data reduction and structure solving; separate software servers for beamline device control, configuration archiving, and experiment control, database, and crystallographic software; several user workstations.
