Technology Overview


The Facility

The facility is comprised of 05ID-2 and 05B1-1 Beamlines and supporting laboratories. The bend magnet (BM) beamline, 05B1-1, will test and validate new ideas in imaging and therapy for eventual translation to BMIT’s insertion device (ID) beamlines 05ID-2.

Most of the 05ID-2 beamline is housed in a ~1100m2 addition to the northeast corner of the CLS facility.  The facility is arranged so that animal preparation and hutch entry is from inboard side of the beamline while the human research access is from the outboard side.
