microXAS - X05LA: Environmental & Materials Sciences
Two additional features make the microXAS beamline a rather exceptional and exclusive X-ray microprobe facility. First, the microXAS beamline permits the investigation of radioactive materials and corresponds to the world-wide solely microprobe facility being able to analyze radioactive sample with 1µm spatial resolution. Second and definitely going beyond any existing X-ray microprobe instrumentation, the FEMTO project is an integral part of the microXAS beamline project. Ultrafast time-resolved X-ray studies with a resolution of picoseconds down to ~100 femtoseconds are ‘routinely’ carried out at the microXAS beam line.
|Energy range||~3 - 23 keV|

The thermal conditions during laser-based additive manufacturing are inferred from high-speed X-ray diffraction data and can be linked to a model for rapid solidification.
High-speed in situ X-ray diffraction is used to measure temperature profiles and cooling rates during 3D printing of a a Ti-6Al-4V single-track wall.
