ALS beamline 12.2.2 is a dedicated high-pressure diffraction beamline. It focuses on double-sided in-situ laser heating (for axial as well as radial diffraction geometry) and high-pressure single crystal diffraction. The beamline operates on two end-stations where end-station-1 is currently rebuilt to accommodate a 4-circle single crystal diffractometer with an RD CMOS detector. End-station-2 hosts the in-situ laser heating set up with a choice of image plate and fast pixel detector. Users have a fully equipped (microscopes, laser-mill, gas-loader) preparation lab available for use.
Description by Quentin Williams
This view of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory’s Advanced Light Source (ALS) looks head-on into the upper and lower rows of magnets in an undulator. The vertical distance between the magnets can be adjusted to determine the wavelength emitted. In this photo, a laser simulates the burst of light produced.
