Swiss-Norwegian Beamline BM31
Beamline BM31 (previously BM01B) is dedicated to combined XRD/XAFS/PDF/Raman measurements on evolving chemical and physical systems
BM31 is specialized in X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy (XAS), High Resolution Powder, Diffraction (HRPD) and Total Scattering (PDF)..
The beamline is optimized for fast sequential (quasi-simultaneous) XAS and HRPD measurements on on the same sample spot under in-situ
and in-operando conditions (heating, cooling, varying gas-loadings, in situ catalytic conditions etc).
Main fields of application are in-situ measurements targeted towards: Catalysis, material synthesis, battery research, phase transitions and
sorption/diffusion processes, all monitoring the evolution of samples in real-time.
