Local structure analysis beamline

BL11 is a hard X-ray bending magnet beamline designed for engineering science research. The main techniques that are used with this beamline are X-ray absorption and X-ray small-angle scattering. The beamline has two experimental hutches. The first experimental hutch is located 12 m from the source and has dimensions of 3 m (along beam) × 3 m (W) × 3 m (H). The second is located 21.5 m from the source and has dimensions of 6 m (along beam) × 3 m (W) × 2.7 m (H). An XAFS measurement system is installed in the first experimental hutch.
