DanMAX Experimental Station
The instrument and this page is under construction – here you will soon be able to find more details about the DanMAX end station instrumentation, available detectors, available sample environments and how you can interface your own sample environments.
The experimental hutch at DanMAX will host three instruments:
Imaging: Full field imaging with various contrast modes
PXRD2D: In situ and operando experiment using an area detector
PXRD1D: High (enough) resolution diffractometer using an array of microstrip detectors.
You can read more about the powder diffraction instruments in the Detailed Design Report for PXRD here: Diffraction_DDR_v2.pdf.
Detectors at DanMAX:
|Detector||Type||Maximum frame rate||Active area||Resolution in px||Pixel size||Notes|
|DECTRIS PILATIUS3 X 2M CdTe||CdTe based hybrid pixel array detector - photon counting||250 Hz||253.7 x 288.8 mm2||1475 x 1679 (h x v)||172 x 172 µm2|
|RaySpec SiriusSD + XIA FalconX8-1||Single element silicon drift detector for XRF and FalconX digital pulse processor||65 mm2 (collimated 50 mm2 )||1||The XRF detector is on loan from the Birkedal group at Aarhus University, Denmark and made available through grant CF18-0802 from the Carslberg Foundation.|
Available sample environments:
|Capillary spinner||Capillary spinner in horizontal or vertical orientation. Manual Huber 1002 goniometer head and rotation speed up to 5 Hz. Samples are mounted using SPINE magnetic caps|
|Rotation stage||Huber 408 goniometer in vertical orientation. Manual Huber 1002 goniometer head. Samples are mounted using SPINE magnetic caps|
|XY stage||Standa 8MT175-150X-100Y linear stages. Resolution ~ 1 µm.|
|Cryostream||Oxford Cryosystems, Cryostream 800. Open flow nitrogen stream for sample temperatures in the range 80-400 K. The cryostream is available with both sample spinner and rotation stage.|
|Breadboard for users own setups||For user build sample environments we offer a standard 25 mm pitch M6 breadborad. The usable surface is round with a diameter of 280 mm. The distance from the surface of the breadboard to the beam is 200 mm. Sample environments must be pre-approved by BL staff.|
Building / interfacing your own sample environments to DanMAX:
To minimise the time used to install and align user supplied sample environments we propose that users design their setups to match the kinematic mount installed on the large hexapod on the instrument. A detailed drawing of the interface and SE envelope can be found here, and a reference CAD model of the user supplied interface plate is available here. Any equipment must be approved by MAX IV and BL staff before use. Please contact BL staff for information about interfacing to other systems, e.g. control system, motion control, compressed air etc.
