Cover illustration: Small-angle X-ray scattering pattern of a hard-sphere silica system recorded on the two central modules of a PILATUS 2M detector (see Westermeier, Autenrieth, Gutt, Leupold, Duri, Menzel, Johnson, Broennimann and Grübel, pages 687-689). The insets show the static structure factor of this sample and the counts per pixel per frame (10 ms of data acquisition time) of four arbitrarily chosen pixels at positions marked with the four black circles in the SAXS pattern.

From an X-ray diffraction imaging experiment using an X-ray CCD camera, it was found that equal-thickness X-ray Pendellösung interference fringes show a strange temporal oscillation in a manner similar to the previously reported spatial oscillation of moiré and Pendellösung fringes, presumably as an intrinsic property of the fringes.

The IMCA-CAT bending-magnet beamline was upgraded with a collimating mirror in order to achieve the energy resolution required to conduct MAD/SAD experiments without sacrificing beamline flux throughput. The performance of the 17-BM beamline optics and its deviations from ideally shaped optics are discussed in the context of constraints imposed by bending properties of the beamline major optical components.
