Liquid Surface X-ray Scattering

Detectors

  • Bruker APEXII Detector (62 x 62 active area) with four ports readout:
    • readout with 8 x 8 binning takes ~1 s (uncorrelated); readout with 4 x 4 binning takes ~1.5 s (uncorrelated); 2θ range ~25 to -110°. Two APEXII detectors are used at the beamline, one for crystallography, the other for high-energy liquid surface scattering.
  • Dectris PILATUS 100 Detector (84 x 33.5 mm active area). 20 bits (1MB) dynamic range, 2.3ms readout time. Used for liquid surface scattering.
  • Cyberstar 1000 Point Detector 30 mm diameter aperture, for special liquid surface applications.

Additional detectors may be borrowed from the APS Detector Pool.
