This beamline houses a General Purpose Diffractometer used for crystal truncation rod (CTR) diffraction, resonant anomalous interface diffraction, long period x-ray standing waves, reflectivity, grazing incidence XRF, grazing incidence XAFS, inelastic x-ray scattering, and microcrystallography. The primary scientific focus is on characterizing mineral-water interface reactions which control the chemistry of natural waters by a variety of processes including sorption and desorption, mineral growth and dissolution, and biofilm and nanoparticle formation. In addition, a Paris-Edinburgh cell is available for high pressure scattering experiments.
