Study of the X-ray radiation interaction with a multislit collimator for the creation of microbeams in radiation therapy

The study of the synchrotron X-ray radiation interaction with a multislit collimator is a critical factor for the creation of microbeams in radiation therapy. This study is a fundamental step forward in the understanding and definition of a reliable protocol for dosimetry at the micrometric scale to be used in microbeam radiation therapy.

Characterization and performance evaluation of the XSPA-500k detector with synchrotron radiation

A Rigaku XSPA-500k was evaluated and its performance characterized on the Metrology beamline at Synchrotron SOLEIL jointly by the SOLEIL Detector Group, AGH-UST and Rigaku.

Accepted 21 December 2020

Feasibility of X-ray beam nanofocusing with compound refractive lenses

The problem of X-ray beam nanofocusing with compound refractive lenses is examined in detail. It is shown that the minimum beam size is independent of either the aperture or photon energy but depends only on the compound refractive lens material electron density.

Accepted 16 December 2020

Effect of germanium auto-diffusion on the bond lengths of Ga and P atoms in GaP/Ge(111) investigated X-ray absorption spectroscopy

Integration of high crystalline structures of III–V semiconductors on Si and Ge is the prime requirement for the implementation of highly efficient and economically viable nano-photonic devices. EXAFS results of GaP/Ge(111) obtained using a synchrotron radiation source provided excellent insight and proposed new possibilities within the GaP/Ge hetero-structure, such as the conversion from indirect to direct band structures and engineering the tensile strain quantum dot structures on (111) surfaces.

Accepted 15 December 2020

Annealing of focused ion beam damage in gold microcrystals: an in situ Bragg coherent X-ray diffraction imaging study

An in situ Bragg coherent X-ray diffraction annealing experiment on focused ion beam damaged gold microcrystals is presented.

Accepted 11 December 2020

FMX – the Frontier Microfocusing Macromolecular Crystallography Beamline at the National Synchrotron Light Source II

The new Frontier Microfocus Macromolecular Crystallography beamline FMX in sector 17-ID-2 of the National Synchrotron Lightsource II provides an ultra-bright microfocus beam and a flexible experimental station for structure determination from the most challenging crystals.

Accepted 8 December 2020

Redox state and photoreduction control using X-ray spectroelectrochemical techniques – advances in design and fabrication through additive engineering

The design and operation of a 3D-printed flow in situ electrochemical cell suitable for ambient-temperature X-ray absorption spectra measurements is described. The ability to control, and significantly limit, photoreduction whilst requiring only small solution volumes make this a superior sampling approach to cryogenic techniques for many samples.

Accepted 29 November 2020

The 1-Megapixel pnCCD detector for the Small Quantum Systems Instrument at the European XFEL: system and operation aspects

A description of the 1-Megapixel pnCCD detector design and capabilities, its implementation at EuXFEL's Small Quantum Systems Instrument both mechanically and from the controls side as well as important data correction steps aim to provide useful background for users planning and analyzing experiments at EuXFEL and may serve as a benchmark for comparing and planning future endstations at other FELs.
