  • Past EmploymentJune 1st, 2009 NSLS II powder diffraction beamline2001-2008 senior scientist fellowship (Neel Institute, CNRS, FR)1996-2000 powder diffraction (ESRF BM16, now ID31)1990-1995 High energy ion and Laser Research Center (CNRS, FR)1988-1989 Post-doc powder diffraction (SRS Daresbury, UK)
  • Research
  • powder diffraction (SRS, ESRF, SOLEIL, neutrons ILL)
  • (in situ, line profile, direct space and Rietveld, upgrade of ESRF-BM02)
  • epitaxial thin films/multilayers of oxides (ferroelectric, relaxor, magnetic)
  • cultural heritage (chair of “SR in Art and Archaeology” + IUCr commission)
scientific mission
Scientific Mission

Use the brightness of NSLS II

flux demanding - high throughput - high time resolution

high angle resolution (structure solving, microstructure)

beam focusing down to ~50μm (high spatial resolution)

Use the high energy spectrum of the damping wiggler

sample environments (non-ambient, in-situ, in-operando)

high Q (PDF) on simultaneously operating side branch

access K-edge of heavy elements (contrast diffraction)

scientific domains
Scientific Domains
  • Complex materials
    • Many atoms, heterogeneity, size and defects, poor scatterer
  • Functional/real materials functioning: in-situ / in-operando studies
    • Materials change structure under synthesis/operational conditions, e.g. catalysts, H2 storage
    • Towards real working devices, e.g., ultra-thin dielectric films, fuel cell electrodes
  • Nanoscale materials
    • Bottom up design and build of materials with directed functionality
    • Hierarchical materials: control structure on different length-scales

  • High energy  Laue curved analyzer(see Zhong, Siddons, Hastings, Kao)

Off-plane diffraction analyzer (patent 2007)


High Energy Micro-Diffraction

  • many samples are inherently heterogeneous (multi-scale)
  • beam size should match : graininess, heterogeneity scale, sample geometry
  •  variable focal spot size
  • imaging mode, micro-diffraction (~500 to ~50μm)‏
  • total crystallography: neither a powder nor a single crystal

commercially available CRL set-up of Prof. Lengeler (Aachen)

beamline design iteration
Beamline Design Iteration
  • Due to extensive changes in scientific objectives ACCEL were commissioned to revise the design to concentrate on the higher energies. The changes requested use both commercial experience and unique in-house expertise, and can be made within the existing budget.
  • Active involvement of all members of the BAT in developing the beamline design.
  • 2nd Beamline Scientist interviews in progress.

damping wiggler power management
Damping Wiggler Power Management
  • Full 7m damping wiggler length (65kW).
  • Selective aperturing:
    • central part of the fan has higher energies,
    • restrict aperture to ~1mrad (H) x 0.1mrad (V),
    • still leaves almost 6kW!
  • Concentrating on the high energies allows extreme filtering:
    • multistage C (5mm total) and Al (8mm total) filtering leaves just 280W, of which 21W is absorbed in the 0.5mm Si crystal;
    • the cost is some loss of useful flux:
      • lose 64% of flux at 50 keV, and
      • lose 46% of flux at 80 keV.
main beamline performance
Main Beamline Performance

Vertical focusing (or collimation) with CRLs, dE/E~1x10-4, Si[311]

second end station long set ups
Second End Station (long set-ups)

A key requirement of the User community is to provide for fast changeover of samples and environments.

Typical experiments may include gas rigs, high-pressure, high or low temperatures....

side branch beamline
Side-Branch Beamline

Laue or Bragg single bounce mono (~4 degree deflection)

with horizontal focusing,

Vertical focusing with CRLs,

Fixed energy at 80 keV,

Energy resolution of ~4 x 10-3 allowable

issues and conclusions
Issues and Conclusions

The only high-resolution instrument in the US capable of collecting data at high energies ( 40 keV to 100 keV)  ideal for high-Q data and in situ and time resolved studies in environmental cells.

Combining complementary analysis probes, e.g., micro-raman

Investigation and development required on:

beam filtering and DLCM : heat load, band pass,...

deflecting side bounce monochromator (including cooling scheme)

focusing : mono and CRLs

Detector development e.g. Siddons’ work on Ge strip array

Start work on software requirements and sample environments

Conceptual design report due end Sept 2009.
