Cover illustration: The double-crystal high-flux monochromator of the Austrian SAXS beamline at ELETTRA (Italy), which supplies the three fixed energies 5.4, 8 and 16 keV, see Bernstorff, Amenitsch and Laggner, pages 1215-1221. The monochromator serves also as a beamsplitter, providing simultaneously a diffraction beamline and the SAXS beamline.
