Abstract:

High energy (HE) beamlines are often multi-purposed, because they try to maximise the benefit of the unique wavelength-range they cover. Also, their beamline optics is mostly custom-designed and produced, as there is little standard synchrotron optics available for HE x-rays.

Here we present I12 at Diamond, a highly user-oriented HE-beamline with a variety of imaging, tomography and diffraction facilities.

An in-house designed cryogenically cooled double-crystal bent Laue monochromator produces 50 keV - 150 keV radiation with a size up to 100mm x 30mm. White beam is available, too.
Particularly in-situ studies benefit not only from good x-ray penetration through samples and sample environment but also from the comfortably large sample-detector distances, due to short wavelengths. We will demonstrate recent results in time-resolved tomography of in-situ extrusion, casting, high speed imaging of welding processes and various diffraction experiments including pdf-studies, EDXD, and micro-beam Laue.
