BR-GHT Beamlines

Micro-Computed Tomography beamline

With enhanced submicron spatial resolution, speed and contrast, the Micro-Computed (MCT) Tomography beamline opens a window on the micron-scale 3D structure of a wide range of samples relevant to many areas of science including life sciences, materials engineering, anthropology, palaeontology and geology.

Medium Energy X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy beamline

The Medium Energy- X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy (MEX) beamline will provide medium energy absorption spectroscopy (MEX) on a bending magnet, optimised for cutting-edge applications in biological, agricultural and environmental science in an energy range is not currently available in Australia and New Zealand.

Biological Small Angle X-ray Scattering beamline

The Biological Small Angle X-ray Scattering (BioSAXS) Beamline will be optimised for measuring small angle scattering of proteins and other biological macromolecules. It combines combine a state-of-the-art small angle scattering beamline with specialised on-line protein purification and preparation techniques for high-throughput protein analysis

Advanced Diffraction and Scattering beamlines

The Advanced Diffraction and Scattering (ADS 1&2) Beamlines will be optimised for a range of leading-edge diffraction and scattering techniques including: studies of mineral formation and recovery under extreme conditions of temperature and pressure; non-destructive detection of cracking, fractures, textures, strains and deformations in large manufactured objects across the energy, automotive, transport, defence and aerospace sectors; maintenance and component failure studies of engineering infrastructure; and studies of corrosion and cracking in aluminium alloys used in aircraft and marine platforms.

High Performance Macromolecular Crystallography beamline

The High Performance Macromolecular Crystallography (MX3) beamline will enable the study of sub-5 micrometre crystals, providing a state-of-the-art high-throughput facility for researchers to study very small, weakly diffracting crystals of protein fragments and solution studies of protein fragments for virology, drug design and industrial applications.

X-ray Fluorescence Nanoprobe

The X-ray Fluorescence Nanoprobe beamline undertakes high-resolution X-ray microspectroscopy, elemental mapping and coherent diffraction imaging - providing a unique facility capable of spectroscopic and full-fieldimaging at sub-30nm resolution. With a cryogenic sample mount, the system will also provide the ability to probe frozen hydrated biological samples, imaging and identifying cellular substructures.
