Design of the experimental stage for coherent diffraction imaging

  • Z. D. Pešić (a1), U. H. Wagner (a1) and C. Rau (a1) (a2)


The I13 beamline of Diamond Light Source encompasses two fully independent branches devoted for coherent imaging experiments (coherent X-ray diffraction and ptychography) and X-ray imaging and tomography (full-field microscopy and in-line phase contrast imaging). This contributed paper outlines the main features of the coherence beamline and a preliminary design of the experimental station for coherent X-ray diffraction imaging.
