Australian Synchrotron

The Australian Synchrotron

A world-class national research facility that uses accelerator technology to produce a powerful source of light-X rays and infrared radiation a million times brighter than the sun.

Capabilities ANSTO Facilities


ANSTO provides access to specialised facilities and capabilities by application. Please ensure that you contact the relevant ANSTO scientist for advice before submitting a proposal.

High Performance Macromolecular Crystallography Beamline (MX3)

High Performance Macromolecular Crystallography Beamline (MX3)

The High Performance Macromolecular Crystallography beamline will enable the study of very small (sub-5 micrometre) or weakly diffracting crystals, providing a state-of-the-art high-throughput facility for researchers. MX3 will be able to study the structures of large proteins and protein complexes for virology, drug design and industrial applications via goniometer mounted crystals, in-tray screening, or via serial crystallography methods.


Medium Energy X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy Beamline (MEX-1 and MEX-2)

The Medium Energy- X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy beamlines will provide access to XANES and EXAFS data from a bending magnet source, optimised for cutting-edge applications in biological, agricultural and environmental science in an energy range that is not currently available at the Australia Synchrotron.

Samples - Infrared microspectroscopy

Samples - Infrared microspectroscopy

The Infrared microspectroscopy microscopes can record spectra from a range of different samples; from thin microtomed sections to polished blocks and embedded particles. This section highlights the types of samples that can be analysed using the IRM beamline

Molecular scaffold

Experiments at the Synchrotron enable researchers to produce a 3D structure of a molecular scaffold with role in cancer

Progress on BRIGHT Project beamlines

The complex engineering of scientific instruments is explored in this 'behind the scenes' look at the installation of frontends for two new beamlines at the Australian Synchrotron.
