BM02 - D2AM a French CRG Beamline for in situ material characterization

D2AM is dedicated for advanced, time, space and energy-resolved in situ synchrotron characterization in materials science, e.g., single crystal or polycrystalline materials, powders, liquids, thin films, or epitaxial nanostructures. A large number of scattering techniques are available thanks to the beamline optical elements, to its high precision kappa diffractometer, and to its small-angle X-ray scattering bench.

All these techniques may be coupled with the anomalous approach where the beam energy may be scanned over several hundreds of eV without altering the beam position on the sample.
