ID15 is a canted beam line which houses the former high pressure diffraction setup from ID09A on the ID15B branch and two hutches for materials engineering and materials chemistry on the ID15A branch. Both branches operate fully independently and are open for user service. Please feel free to contact any of the instrument staff to discuss your requirements. These pages describe the ID15A branch, which is comprised of two experimental hutches.

Key points for EH2 (Materials Engineering)

  • Energy range 20 < E < 250 KeV monochromatic, and white beam to 500 KeV
  • Beam sizes from 50 µm to 8 mm

Key points for EH3 (Materials Chemistry)

  • Energy range 20 < E < 140 KeV
  • Beam sizes from 0.3 µm to 8 mm
