BL13A1

X-ray Scattering

By using X-ray diffraction and scattering techniques, beamline BL13A1 is constructed chiefly for studying the lamellar structures of the biological membranes. Researchers can resolve the variations in membrane thickness caused by controlled changes of temperature and humidity as well as interaction with biological molecules.
