Synchrotron X-rays for materials science and engineering: Introduction, Swedish beamline at PETRA III and research examples

(The director of the CeXS, Prof. Peter Hedström, will visit Luleå University of Technology on 20 DEC 2019 and give a talk about the center CeXS and SMS beamline P21 at PETRA III.)


High-energy synchrotron X-rays provides a powerful probe for materials characterization across materials science disciplines.

In order to meet the requirements from the Swedish materials community and to complement the lower energy synchrotron X-ray facility MAX IV, Sweden has invested in the Swedish Materials Science beamline (SMS) P21 at PETRA III. P21.2 is setup for experiments combining diffraction and small-angle scattering or imaging, in particular in-situ and in-operando studies are emphasized.

The SMS agreement between the Swedish Research Council and DESY, operating PETRA III, includes privileged access for Swedish users.  

In this talk Peter Hedström will present conditions for the privileged Swedish access, beamline status and experiences so far from SMS, scientific examples of high-energy X-ray usage for materials science, and the role of the Center for X-rays in Swedish Materials Science (CeXS) that has been established to take responsibility for the hosting of the SMS.
