The Alvra end station of SwissFEL specializes in measuring the ultrafast dynamics of photochemical and photobiological systems using a variety of X-ray scattering and spectroscopic techniques. For the Alvra branch, the Alvra Prime chamber and Alvra Flex in-air instruments will be available with the following parameters:
The Bernina instrument presently provides two interchangeable platforms, the X-ray Diffractometer (XRD) equipped with a two circle detector arm, and the General Purpose Station (GPS) with a multi-purpose horizontal 2-theta arm.
Both platforms/endstations can be completed with a sample platform choice of a 6 DOF heavy load goniometer, a 2-circle surface diffractometer combination plus hexapod, and a kappa arm. An additional 6 DOF robot arm can be used for flexible detector positioning.
