The following equipment is planned for the Balder experimental station. The availability is indicated by the status and user call columns. Before applying for beamtime, please contact the Balder team to check the present status of the experimental station. New in this call is that the SCANIA-2D spectrometer, first branch, is open for all user. Please read more about our X-ray emission spectrometer in scania2D-CDR_20141117.pdf.
In addition, the SEDS group will in the future provide equipment/cells that can be used at the beamline.

The Balder lab is available for sample preparation during your beamtime. However, if you need to prepare in advance or require equipment not available at the beamline lab, then please check the general support labs and book via the links below.
Sample preparations and labs
There are several on-site labs available close to the beamlines, where you are able to prepare samples in appropriate environments.
For general information about the biological, chemical and microscopy support labs, please refer to our lab page.
