The experimental station is equipped with a diffractometer with a horizontal-axis
air-bearing goniometer and detectors. Two types of cryostream coolers,
nitrogen gas and helium gas, are installed on the diffractometer for experiments
under cryogenic condition. The X-ray CCD detector (Rayonix MX225HE)
and imaging plate detector (RIGAKU R-AXIS V) are installed and available.
Robotic Sample Handling System, SPACE developed at SPring-8 is also installed
MX225HE is always set up on the detector base so that most users may use
the CCD detector. If you wish to use the IP detector, it is necessary to
describe it in the application form when you submit your proposal.
★★★New CCD detector, MX225HE (Rayonix) was installed on April 7, 2010.★★★

Robotic Sample Handling System
SPring-8 Precise Automatic Cryo-sample Exchanger (SPACE) is installed.
Since this SPACE has been equipped with a newly developed attachment for
usual metal magnet sample pins, users can select sample pin type, SPACE-specially
screw pins or metal magnet pins.
