XAFCA: A new XAFS beamline for catalysis research

Y. Du, Y. Zhu, S. Xi, P. Yang, H. O. Moser, M. B. H. Breese and A. Borgna

Synopsis: XAFCA is a new X-ray absorption fine structure (XAFS) spectroscopy beamline for fundamental and applied catalysis research, built by the Institute of Chemical & Engineering Sciences (ICES) and the Singapore Synchrotron Light Source (SSLS). XAFCA covers the photon energy range from 1.2 keV to 12.8 keV. It incorporates an "in-situ" cell, being able to operate in the temperature range from 4.2 to 1000 K, a pressure up to 30 bar conditions and under flowing gases for in-situ XAS studies on catalysis and materials science.

Performance optimization of a bendable parabolic cylinder collimating X-ray mirror for the ALS micro-XAS beamline 10.3.2

V. V. Yashchuk, G. Y. Morrison, M. A. Marcus, E. E. Domning, D. J. Merthe, F. Salmassi and B. V. Smith

Synopsis: Details of an original design of a bendable parabolic cylinder collimating X-ray mirror with active temperature stabilization are presented. The design grants assembly without spurious stresses, optimal alignment and shaping of the mirror. A motorized sagittal motion allows new areas of the mirror to be used when the current area is damaged or contaminated.
