BM26 - DUBBLE - Dutch-Belgian Beamline

BM26 - DUBBLE - Dutch-Belgian beamline

We mainly cater to researchers in the remit of the Dutch and Flemish research councils but 30% of the beam time is available for general ESRF users.

Two lines: BM26A=XAFS  BM26B=SAXS/WAXS
 
The DUBBLE project operates two beam lines whose main techniques are time-resolved SAXS/WAXS and XAFS. It is possible to collect XAFS data simultaneously with XRD and SAXS (this is sample limited).

We offer flexibility and high quality data

What research is performed here?

The SAXS/WAXS beam line is largely devoted to soft condensed matter research, although scientists from many other research fields (geology, mineralogy, metallurgy, etc.) are also regular visitors.

The XAFS beam line is specialised in on-line catalysis experiments but this is definitely not the only type of experiment carried out here.
