The Swedish high-energy materials science beamline at the PETRA III extenions

Friday, November 30, 2012 at 1:00pm to 2:00pm

Wilson Synchrotron Lab, 3rd Floor Wilson Commons

Ulrich Leinert of DESY, Germany will give the CLASSE Seminar on Friday, November 30th at 1:00 pm, entitled:

The Swedish high-energy materials science beamline at the PETRA III extionsion.

Abstract: The PETRA storage ring at DESY has been modified to serve as a dedicated high-energy synchrotron facility with the presently lowest emittance. A first set of beamlines has been commissioned at the PETRA III facility and two extensions are planned to accommodate experimental techniques that were available at the recently shut-down DORIS facility. The project will be described with particular focus on a high-energy materials science beamline funded by a Swedish consortium. Novel optical concepts will be presented to address challenges for the optics arising from the unique beamline layout. Finally, some future developments of high-energy diffraction microscopy, looking at diffraction from individual grains within polycrystalline materials, will be presented.
