Hard X-ray Micro/Nano-Probe beamline P06

The location of P06 in the Max-von-Laue Experimental Hall is marked in orange.

The Hard X-ray Micro/Nano-Probe beamline P06 at PETRA III provides advanced visualisation with micro/nanoscopic spatial resolution using different X-ray techniques such as X-ray fluorescence (XRF), X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS), X-ray diffraction (XRD) as well as imaging (absorption, phase contrast). Coherent diffraction imaging applying ptychographic scanning schemes enables X-ray microscopy with increased spatial resolution down to the low nanometer range.

The beamline houses two different experiments in separate hutches: The Nanoprobe is open for user applications. Until commissioning of additional beamline optics (broad-band monochromator, prefocusing) is not complete, basic experimental techniques are micro-SAXS/micro-WAXS. The Microprobe is currently under commissioning. Depending on the feasibility of the individual experiment also proposals for the microprobe will be considered.
