XIA supports cutting edge research at the NSLS-II synchrotron

A new state-of-the-art beamline end-station being commissioned at NSLS-II involves XIA equipment, and is featured on the front cover of Synchrotron Radiation News, March/April 2017 edition.

The NSLS-II synchrotron located on the site of Brookhaven National Laboratory in Upton, New York is currently the most advanced synchrotron facility in the US that operates at energies ranging from soft to hard X-ray regions.  At NSLS-II, the Inner Shell Spectroscopy (ISS) beamline utilizes X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy (XAS) to probe catalytic reactions, giving element-specific information on chemical state and atomic coordination.  XIA is proud to contribute to the work of the ISS beamline with the provision of a 15-channel DXP-xMAP system for elemental fast mapping.  A recent article by Palomino et al1 in Synchrotron Radiation News (http://www.tandfonline.com/toc/gsrn20/30/2?nav=tocList) describes the facility in more detail, and the end-station equipment is featured on the front cover of SRN.
