The DUtch-Belgian BeamLinE (DUBBLE) is a collaborative research group (CRG) beamline at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF). DUBBLE is funded by the Dutch Science Foundation (NWO) and Flemish Research Foundation (FWO) in the proportion 75%:25%.

The acronym DUBBLE also reflects the fact that the radiation from the synchrotron source (bending magnet 26) is split into two branches: a hard energy line BM26-B dedicated to combined small angle scattering (SAXS) and wide angle scattering (WAXS), and a softer energy line BM26-A dedicated to X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS). DUBBLE therefore caters to the needs of a wide user community.
