Experimental Technique Group

►Group Mission

The mission of this group is to design, characterize, and maintain the state-of-the-art optical elements of the high performance beamlines at the NSRRC. The mission is carried out in collaboration with scientists, engineers and users at the NSRRC, and others in industry, academia, government, and other synchrotron sources in the world. In support of this mission, we are willing:

  1. to design and simulate beamline optics according to the desired beamline performance from the user community,
  2. to procure and characterize x-ray optical elements, such as monochromators, mirrors, multilayers, zone plates, and refractive lenses, 
  3. to carry out joint programs with the user community on the development of new optics for special beamline applications.
