BM26 - DUBBLE - Dutch-Belgian Beamline

BM26 - DUBBLE - Dutch-Belgian beamline

The beamline is funded by the Dutch and Flemish research councils, which means that 70% of the available beam time is reserved for researchers working in Dutch or Flemish institutes (who submit a CRG proposal). The remaining 30% is available for general ESRF applicants (who submit a standard ESRF proposal).

It is a common occurrence that researchers apply via the wrong route

What research is performed here?

The SAXS/WAXS beam line
SAXS-WAXS-samplechanger-700px.png is largely devoted to soft condensed matter research, although scientists from many other research fields (geology, mineralogy, metallurgy, etc.) are also regular visitors
