7-pole superconducting wiggler, 4.2T, 17.4 cm period
Filters: Beamline contains 0.391 mm of graphite filters, .500 mm silicon filter, and 2.0 mm of beryllium windows.
Apertures: Beamline apertures located 19 meters from the source control the vertical and horizontal source size available to the monochromator crystals.
Large-volume (~1 cu mm) multi-anvil press in either cubic or octahedral mode, providing pressures up to 29 GPa and temperatures up to 2000 K. Detectors include (1) a single-element solid-state Ge detector; (2) a 13 element solid-state Ge detector, of which 4 are used; (3) x-ray imaging via a YAG crystal, 10x magnifier, and CCD and video cameras; (4) Bruker CCD x-ray camera, and (5) TIP (translating imaging plate). Non-hydrostatic deformation and ultrasonic interferometric measurements are each supported in conjunction with the above high pressure and temperature apparatus.
Computer System Hardware & Software
VME crate with a Linux boot host; a Windows 2003 server for data, a Windows 7 computer as a soft IOC and 4 Windows XP workstations, one of which is also a soft IOC. All of these are part of the EPICS conviguration. Backups of the servers are automatically performed to external hard drives. An HP 4500 color LaserJet printer is available for beamline use.
