D-line Upgrade and New Science Capabilities

By Ernie Fontes and Detlef Smilgies


CHESS’s popular D1 station, utilizing synchrotron radiation from a hard-bend dipole magnet and a multilayer monochromator, has both a versatile optical system and a 5-meter long hutch (Figure 1). Sharing the smallest x-ray source size at CHESS with C-line, D1 has been extensively used for small and wide angle scattering as well as microbeam experiments with glass capillaries to create x-ray beams on the scale of 50 nanometers to 50 microns. Recent applications include grazing-incidence small- and wideangle x-ray scattering on thin films of soft materials such as block copolymers 1, conjugated polymers 2, nanocrystal assemblies 3 and nanoporous films 4 as well as high-energy small-angle scattering in conjunction with diamond anvil cells 5, and microbeam SAXS and WAXS studies 6. D1 has also supported a development program for new experimenta
