Dedicated hardware and software for high-speed, high-precision scanning ‘on-the-fly’ have now been deployed at all of HPCAT’s end-stations.  Hardware includes field-...

Recently a new high-precision radioscope was designed, assembled, and commissioned at station 16-ID-B.  New features include a CCD camera with pixels one fourth the area of the previous...

The on-line laser heating system has been reconfigured to accommodate the modification of the high energy monochromator at the 16-ID-B beamline. Several new items have been implemented in the...

The diffraction beamline (16-ID-B) monochromotor has been modified to offer a significant increase in the maximum energy range up to 60 keV, and a substantial increase...

As we seek to explore the properties of materials under extreme conditions, the high pressure spectroscopy station (16-ID-D) has commissioned a new focusing mirror system.  Near the middle of...

HPCAT recently installed and commissioned a compact Kirkpatrick-Baez (KB) mirror assembly capable of delivering the smallest, most tightly focused beam yet at HPCAT’s General Purpose Table (...

To improve collection efficiency in x-ray emission spectroscopy (XES) experiments, we have designed and commissioned a seven-element analyzer XES spectrometer at 16 ID-D of HPCAT. The spectrometer...

HPCAT recently developed and commissioned a compact, high precision, high speed sample positioning system.  The core components of the system include four precision DC servomotor stages with...

We have developed a technique for studying oxide-and-water interfaces under hydrothermal conditions up to 350 °C and 20 MPa. In-situ high-resolution x-ray reflectivity (HRXR) under such...

A laser drill system has been recently constructed and made operational for routine use at HPCAT since February 2014. The new drill system uses a pulsed laser of 400ps pulse duration, ablating...
