Materials science at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The Materials Science Beamline ID11 at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility in Grenoble, France is dedicated to research in materials science notably employing diffraction and scattering techniques. Either an in-vacuum undulator with a minimum gap of 5 mm or a 10 kW wiggler giving high-flux monochromatic X-rays generates the synchrotron radiation in the energy range 5–100 keV. The dominant research is in the area of time-resolved diffraction, powder diffraction, stress/strain studies of bulk material, 3D mapping of grains and grain interfaces with a measuring gauge down ~5×5×50 m, and microcrystal diffraction. A variety of CCD detectors are used to give time-resolution down to the millisecond time regime.
