GSECARS, Sector 13
GSECARS provides earth, environmental and planetary scientists with access to the high-brilliance hard x-rays from the Advanced Photon Source (APS), a third-generation synchrotron light source at Argonne National Laboratory.
Virtually all x-ray-based analytical instrumentation and techniques in demand by these scientists are available:
- high-pressure/high-temperature crystallography and spectroscopy using the laser heated diamond anvil cell
- high-pressure/high-temperature crystallography and imaging using the large-volume press
- powder, single crystal and interface diffraction
- inelastic x-ray scattering
- x-ray absorption fine structure spectroscopy
- x-ray fluorescence microprobe analysis
The GSECARS facility consists of an insertion device (undulator) beamline (13-ID), a bending magnet beamline (13-BM), two support laboratories, an office area and a User Area. Each beamline has a first optics enclosure (13-ID-A and 13-BM-A) and a second optics enclosure (13-ID-B and 13-BM-B). The undulator beamline has three experimental stations (13-ID-C, 13-ID-D, and 13-ID-E), and the bending magnet beamline has two experimental stations (13-BM-C, and 13-BM-D). All nine enclosures have been designed to receive white beam.
