Paper Abstract

The Diamond Beamline I13L is designed to imaging on the micron- and nano-lengthsale with X-rays of energies between 6 and 30 keV [1]. Two independently operating branchlines and endstations have been built at distance of more than 200m from the source for this purpose. The imaging branch is dedicated for imaging in real space, providing In-line phase contrast imaging and grating interferometry with micrometre resolution and full-field transmission microscopy with 50nm spatial resolution. On the coherence branch coherent diffraction imaging techniques such as ptychography, coherent X-ray diffraction (CXRD) and Fourier-Transform holography are currently developed. Because of the large lateral coherence length available at I13, the beamline hosts numerous microscopy experiments. The coherence branchline in particular contains a number of unique features. New instrumental designs have been employed such as a robot arm for the detector in diffraction experiments and a photon counting detector for diffraction experiments. The so-called ‘mini-beta’ layout in the straight section of the electron storage ring permits modulating the horizontal source size and therefor the lateral coherence length. We will present the recent progress in coherent imaging at the beamline and the sciences addressed with the instrumental capabilities. Reference: [1] C. Rau, U. Wagner, Z. Pesic, A.
