Beamline Updates

  • Beamline Update: Robot in WLE Beamline

    Posted on October 12, 2023
    The Brockhouse low energy wiggler beamline (SOE1) has completed an upgrade to its high resolution powder diffraction station. The Huber end-station now uses 8 Mythen detectors instead of 1, reducing data collection time to a few minutes. We have also installed a robot to automatically change through samples, greatly increasing our throughput.

  • Beamline Update: New Eiger Detector

    Posted on August 08, 2023
    We have a new state of the art Dectris Eiger2 detector, primarily for use on the high energy beamline! It is very fast and has no dark current, no memory, and no pixel spread.

  • Beamline Update: New Detector for HE Beamline

    Posted on October 17, 2022
    The high energy beamline just aquired a new Varex XRD4343 detector. It is slightly larger than the old Perkin Elmer but has a small pixel size of 150 um.

  • Beamline Update: Undulator Beamline Joins GU

    Posted on March 23, 2021
    The undulator beamline (SOE3) has joined the general user program.

  • Beamline Update: GU for Wiggler BLs

    Posted on July 23, 2020
    The low energy and high energy wiggler beamlines have entered the general user program and will be accepting proposals during the next proposal call at the end of July. This proposal will be for mail-in only due to COVID-19.

  • Beamline Update: LOI for undulator beamline

    Posted on November 26, 2019
    The Brockhouse undulator beamline (SOE3) has enter the scientific commisioning stage!

  • Beamline Update: LOI for HE beamline

    Posted on June 20, 2019
    The high energy wiggler beamline has reached the letters of intent (LOI) stage!

  • Beamline Update: LOI for small molecule station

    Posted on May 04, 2018
    On May 3rd the Bruker small molecule end-station entered the Letters of Intent (LOI) phase and is now accepting fast access proposals. Contact a beamline staff member if interested. This is the first LOI for Brockhouse and a huge milestone!

  • Beamline Update: Diffraction Pattern!

    Posted on February 07, 2018
    We have our first diffraction pattern of Si on the Bruker endstation.

  • Beamline Update: First Beam

    Posted on January 22, 2018
    We have our first beam into the hutches

A new method for improved PDF data quality has been developed. See the paper.
