Ancient administrative handwritten documents: X-ray analysis and imaging

F. Albertin, A. Astolfo, M. Stampanoni, E. Peccenini, Y. Hwu, F. Kaplan and G. Margaritondo

Synopsis: The heavy-element content of ink in ancient administrative documents makes it possible to detect the characters with different synchrotron imaging techniques, based on attenuation or refraction. This is the first step in the direction of non-interactive virtual X-ray reading.

Accepted 7 January 2015

A small and robust active beamstop for scattering experiments on high-brilliance undulator beamlines

C. E. Blanchet, C. Hermes, D. I. Svergun and S. Fiedler

Synopsis: Using an indirect detection scheme, a small-size beamstop was developed to accurately measure X-ray beam flux in a wide energy range with reduced radiation level on the electronics and significantly increased in-beam lifetime.

CDApps: integrated software for experimental planning and data processing at beamline B23, Diamond Light Source

R. Hussain, K. Benning, T. Javorfi, E. Longo, T. R. Rudd, B. Pulford and G. Siligardi

Towards RIP using free-electron laser SFX data

L. Galli, S.-K. Son, T. A. White, R. Santra, H. Chapman and M. H. Nanao

Synopsis: Experimental phasing remains an important technical goal in free-electron laser (FEL) serial femtosecond crystallography (SFX) experiments. Here, it is shown that simulated native SFX cathepsin B data can be phased by rapid changes to atomic scattering factors induced by FEL pulses.

In situ synchrotron X-ray diffraction investigation of the evolution of a PbO2/PbSO4 surface layer on a copper electrowinning Pb anode in a novel electrochemical flow cell

M. Clancy, M. J. Styles, C. J. Bettles, N. Birbilis, M. Chen, Y. Zhang, Q. Gu, J. A. Kimpton and N. A. S. Webster

Synopsis: The evolution of the PbO2 and PbSO4 surface layers formed on a pure lead anode during electrochemical cycling relevant to electrowinning operations is characterized by in situ synchrotron X-ray diffraction and subsequent Rietveld-based quantitative phase analysis and thickness calculations. The design of a novel reflection geometry electrochemical flow cell is also described.
