The beamline was closed to users from March to June for an experimental hutch extension (now 3 m longer), which will allow it to house the new 6-circle diffractometer in kappa geometry (from Newport, with installation scheduled for April 2012), and an enlarged SAXS table. A new monochromator, designed for spectroscopy, is also under construction and will be installed on the beamline during the winter shutdown. The programme will be completed with new mirrors.
