P02.1 is a side station of the P02 beamline, operating simultaneously and independently of the mainline station (P02.2 – Extreme Conditions). Simultaneous operation is achieved by the beamline having a fixed high energy of 60 keV (λ ~ 0.207 A), which makes the beamline well suited for studies of:
Studies of high-Z containing polycrystalline samples
In situ or operando studies of chemical reactions, including crystallization, catalysis and battery cells
Investigation of nanostructured or amorphous materials
The beamline provides an unfocussed beam the size of which may be varied from ~0.2×0.2 mm2 to 1.0×1.0 mm2. A Perkin Elmer XRD1621 area detector mounted on a long translation stage is available for data collection. At the longest sample to detector distances (SDD) of about 2.7 m standard powder (Bragg) diffraction suitable for structure solution and Rietveld refinement may be measured. At the minimum SDD (approx. 0.2 m) total scattering data for PDF analysis may be obtained.
