The MASSIF experimental stations are designed as highly automated production lines, in order to provide a fast throughput.

Goniometer and sample changer

MASSIF-3 has a very small focalized beam (15 x 15 µm), with a typical flux of 2 x 1013 photon/s. With this beam size, it is important to have the best possible goniometer (SOC ~1 µm).

  beam at sample position (15 x 15 µm)

MASSIF-3 is currently running with a MD2 micro-diffractometer and a FlexHCD sample changer.
