New imaging opportunities at the DIAMOND beamline I13L (Conference Presentation)
Author(s): Christoph Rau

Paper Abstract

The Diamond Beamline I13L is dedicated to multi-scale imaging, with two independently operating branchlines[1,2]. 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) are being developed. We demonstrated that ptychographic data recording with a rate of 10kHz is feasible [3], and with the current hardware we are capable of scanning an area of 200µm2s-1. This experimental setup has been made fully accessible for non-expert users [4], using an interface in DAWN for on-line reconstructions with the PtyREX reconstruction software package. While the instrumental development is ongoing and the number of experiments -especially for ptychography- are ramping up rapidly, we are establishing a scientific program arching across both branchlines. The potential range of applications is large, including a few examples such as battery, bio-medical, and geological research. References: [1] C. Rau, U. Wagner, Z. Pesic, A.
