This page is currently being improved just like the beamline.
Keep checking this site as it will be expanding to provide more information including our beamline and synchrotron source as well as introduction to SAXS
I haven't been keeping up with this web space much but there is recent news at CAMD. The monochrometer is providing us some of the best light we have received at CAMD. After a few more experiments to determine the amount of x-rays and resolution of detector, we will be ready to perform experiments pertinent to the research at hand.
Work has resumed on the monochometer and we will likely get light in our hutch soon.
The vacuum manifold was installed and the last table was aligned. The monochometer made it back in the beamline hutch but has not been fully installed. A couple of new pictures were added to the photo gallery of the vacuum plumbing coming together.

Users meeting is today at 3pm. This is a must to maintain an active user status at CAMD. The alternate date for the safety training will be Wednesday April 21. There are several times available for training including: 7am, 10am, 3:30pm, and 5pm. All safety training sessions will be held in the CAMD Conference Room.

The monochrometer was removed from the beamline to install it the other direction. The Germanium crystals will be added at this time. It will also give us an opportunity to roughly align the beam.

Shelves hung from treaded rod below the tables of the beamline.

It looks like CAMD is losing a valuable beamline scientist, Mike Schoonmaker. We want to thank Mike for his help and expertise. We wish him the best of luck.
