Beamline ID27 has been operating since 2006 in replacement of ID30 (an instrument which was mostly dedicated to white beam experimentation). This instrument is fully optimised for monochromatic high-resolution XRD in order to address the most exciting and challenging questions related to science at very high pressures. The beamline can easily accommodate very complex sample environments such as a double-sided laser heating system, Paris-Edinburgh press and HP helium cryostat. Techniques available are powder and single-crystal microdiffraction, X-ray microfluorescence, and in situ Raman scattering.
