Beamline Name 5.2R
Primary Contact: NamePolentarutti Maurizio
Secondary Contact: NameCassetta Alberto
Owner/OperatorSincrotrone Trieste and CNR
Experiments DetailsThe beamline has been designed primarily for macromolecular crystallography.The tunability of the wavelength provides the opportunity to use the Multiwavelength Anomalous Diffraction (MAD) technique for solving the phase problem over a broad range of wavelengths, covering the absorption edges of all the heavy atoms commonly used in protein crystallography. The multipole wiggler spectrum includes high photon flux at low energies, allowing optimisation of the anomalous signal at the Sulphur, Xenon and Calcium edges. Helium purged beampath and helium based cryo-cooling at 100 K are available for data-collection experiments with long wavelengths.The beamline hosts also small molecules crystallography, protein crystallography, powder diffraction, high pressure physics, solid-state experiments.
Special CapabilitiesAbsorption Edges, Automated Sample Screening, High Pressure, High Resolution, High Throughput, Long Wavelength
