The high-resolution triple-crystal diffractometer at the High Energy Beamline at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility is presented. The reciprocal space mapping is demonstrated at a layer of electrochemically etched macro pores in perfect silicon revealing diffraction satellites corresponding to the modulation.

A multiple imaging-plate detector system and focusing mono- chromator have been developed and successfully employed at the Australian National Beamline Facility at the Photon Factory. The utility of the system has been demonstrated through the study of temperature-dependent phase transitions in LB films of metal fatty acids by grazing-incidence X-ray diffraction.

A new three-angle energy-dispersive diffractometer gives greatly improved time-resolved data collection: new results are obtained for cements hydrating at elevated temperatures and pressures, also indicating density changes with time.
