Compact inSituX diffractometer. (a) Schematic layout of the diffractometer at the beamline. Each subsystem is colored differently: the crystallization device and motion stages are green, the beamline components for X-ray diffraction are yellow, the optical imaging components are gray and the excitation light is red. (b) Schematic flowchart of our control system. At the center of the control system is a Raspberry Pi microcomputer, which coordinates the translation stages that carry samples with the imaging, X-ray and excitation subsystems, and communicates with multiple user computers for data analyses. (c) Diffractometer setup installed at the BioCARS 14-ID-B beamline. The diffractometer configured in the data collection mode is shown. (d) Micrograph looking into the prism mirror. This view is upstream along the X-ray beam. The final aperture of the X-ray beam is visible through the slot in the mirror. See text for detail.
