ID16A - Nano-imaging Beamline

Synopsis

The beamline provides a high-brilliance beam focused down to nanometer size, allowing quantitative 3D characterization of the morphology and the elemental composition of specimens in their native state by combining coherent imaging techniques and X-ray fluorescence microscopy.
