Synopsis: Beamline 2.1 is a transmission soft X-ray microscope at the Advanced Light Source of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. This instrument was designed, built and is now operated by the National Center for X-ray Tomography as a new tool for visualizing and quantifying biological specimens. Beamline 2.1 is equipped with a cryogenic rotation stage to enable acquisition of tomographic data from cryopreserved specimens. Using this stage, specimens mounted in capillary tubes can be imaged from any arbitrary angle around a central rotation axis, producing tomographic data sets with maximum completeness of data.
Synopsis: A method simplifying EXAFS analysis of highly disordered materials is presented.
Synopsis: The design and performance of the new sub-millisecond detector for time-resolved X-ray absorption spectroscopy at ID24 at the ESRF is described.
Synopsis: The emerging opportunities for X-ray spectroscopy-based studies of working catalysts at diffraction-limited storage ring sources are discussed. The high photon flux of nanometer-size beams will enable electronic, structural and dynamic investigations of single catalytic particles in space and time domains.
Synopsis: Current capabilities of X-ray spectromicroscopy and coherent diffraction imaging are described. The impact on these methods of the dramatic increase in brightness expected from a diffraction-limited storage ring is discussed in the context of research in energy materials and processes.
Synopsis: Possible future directions for high-pressure science on fourth-generation storage rings are presented.
Synopsis: The lattice design and beam dynamics optimization for Sirius, a new low-emittance synchrotron light source presently under construction at the Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory in Campinas, Brazil, is presented.
Synopsis: The first proposed lattice for a `diffraction-limited light source' is reported. This approach has now more or less been used for the MAX IV project.
Synopsis: The design and plans for implementing fourth-generation and diffraction-limited storage rings around the world are discussed.
Synopsis: Approaches to generating short X-ray pulses with storage rings are discussed, with emphasis on the methods of using superconducting harmonic cavities and injecting short bunches for multi-turn circulation.
Synopsis: A compact lattice and small magnet apertures will be the main characteristics of future diffraction-limited storage rings, adding difficulties for the design of the vacuum system of these machines. The use of NEG coatings and distributed absorbers could provide a solution to overcome these challenges.
