BioCARS facility operates two experimental stations:

  • 14 ID-B (insertion device station)
    with two in-line undulators (U23 and U27)
  • 14 BM-C (bending magnet station)
  • 14-BM-D station is no longer in use.



All stations and their control areas are embedded in a Biosafety Level 3 (BSL 3) facility, unique at the APS, that permits safe research on bio-hazardous materials, such as pathogenic human viruses.
