Within the framework of the Upgrade Programme, the new state-of-the-art synchrotron beamline ID16B has been recently developed for hard X-ray nano-analysis and is dedicated to research areas with high scientific and societal impacts such as nanotechnology, earth and environmental sciences, and bio-medical research. Based on a canted undulator, this long beamline provides hard X-ray nanobeams optimized mainly for spectroscopic applications, including the combination of X-ray fluorescence, X-ray diffraction, X-ray Excited Optical Luminescence, X-ray absorption spectroscopy, as well as nanotomography.
