European Synchrotron Radiation Facility
ID10 - Soft interfaces and coherent scattering beamline

ID10 is a multi-purpose, high-brilliance undulator beamline.
Endstation EH1 is for high-resolution X-ray scattering and surface diffraction on liquid and solid interfaces, combining multiple techniques in a single instrument.
Endstation EH2 is for coherent small-angle X-ray scattering, X-ray photon correlation spectroscopy and coherent diffraction.

The main features of the beamline are:

EH1-SI (Soft Interfaces):

  • high-resolution scattering instrumentation for horizontal and vertical scattering geometry
  • X-ray beam deflector for scattering from liquids (Qz < 2.4 Å-1)
  • energy-tunability: 7 keV < E < 24 keV with Si(111) and 12 keV < E < 30 keV with Si(311)
  • Liquid nitrogen cooled Silicon (111) or (311) crystal channel cut monochromator (intrinsic energy resolution ΔE/E: 1.4*10 -4 and 2.7*10 -5, respectively)
  • double-mirror setup for a strong suppression of higher harmonics.

EH2-CS (Coherent Scattering):

  • High-resolution instrumentation for horizontal scattering geometries (SAXS to WAXS)
  • Possibility of grazing incidence scattering from liquid surfaces
  • Large energy-tunability (7 keV < E < 24 keV)
  • Water cooled Silicon (111) crystal pseudo channel cut monochromators
    (intrinsic energy resolution DeltaE/E : 1.4*10-4)
  • High coherent flux (> 1010 ph/sec/100mA in a 10x10 µm2 beamspot, DeltaE/E = 1.4*10-4)
  • Specialized for X-ray photon correlation spectroscopy (XPCS) experiments (7 keV < E < 13 keV)
  • Optimized for coherent small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) (7 keV < E < 24 keV), X-ray photon correlation spectroscopy (XPCS) and coherent X-ray diffraction imaging (CXDI) (7 keV < E < 10 keV)
  • "Pink" beam option (DeltaE/E = 1-3%) (available from January 2013)
