In accordance to the general philosophy of the project, the design of the Spanish beamline is not novel although it is in the state-of-art. Beamlines of similar design have been constructed or have been proposed for other CRG. The majority of the optical elements proposed for the Spanish beamline have been successfully used in a conceptually similar form in other beamlines. There is no doubt that some modifications will be incorporated simply due to the rapid evolution of the instrumentation. In any case, the beamline optics has to be designed to fit the users requirements preserving the exceptional charactertistics of the source. Firgure 1 shows a general layout of the beamline.
