Hard X-Ray Micro Analysis Beamline

at the Canadian Light Source

IDT designed, built & installed the multi-function Hard X-Ray Micro Analysis (HXMA) beamline at the Canadian light source, used for a variety of techniques such as XAFS and powder diffraction.

HXMA is a wiggler beamline requiring cutting-edge solutions for high heat load components.

The project included the design, assembly, testing and on-site installation of a collimating mirror, a double-toroidal focusing mirror, primary slits, filters, beam diagnostics (including tungsten vane monitors and fluorescent screen) and a family of experimental tables.
