14 ID Beamline
The 14-ID-B station is an insertion device station with two in-line undulators (U23 and U27). A series of choppers, shutters and mirrors is used to isolate a single 100 ps X-ray pulse and to focus the X-ray beam onto the sample. This produces a high peak power in a short 100 ps burst. In the standard mode of operation, the monochromator is not used and the primary KB mirrors focus the full beam to 20 x 80 um2 (H x V). The secondary KB mirrors reduce the X-ray spot size down even further to 15 x 15 um2 (H x V) but larger beams sizes can easily be generated. If the monochromator is used, 100 ps monochromatic experiments can be performed. This station supports Laue and Time-Resolved Crystallography, and Time-Resolved Solution Scattering. It also supports all standard macromolecular crystallography techniques using the full, unpulsed monochromatic beam.
