Workshop – Tracking Electronic and Structural Dynamics in Proteins and Materials at Sector 14

The major upgrade to the BioCARS 14-ID beamline [1] produced unprecedented time-resolved capabilities that have been exploited for x-ray science spanning biology, chemistry, materials science, and physics. More recently, a new area detector (Rayonix MX340-HS, a 60-megapixel high-readout-rate integrating area detector) and secondary Kirkpatrick-Baez focusing mirrors were installed. The new equipment expands opportunities for time-resolved X-ray diffraction and solution scattering at 14-ID even further, by providing ~15 x 15 µm2 focused pink or monochromatic beam.
