Synchrotron Data Collection

aps_layoutFrom  2000 until 2018,  FSU’s Institute of Molecular Biophysics X-Ray Facility (XRF) has been coordinating synchrotron data collection at the Advanced Photon Source at the Argonne National Laboratory. The third generation synchrotron source is available to everyone at Florida State University (FSU) through FSU’s membership at the Southeastern Regional Collaborative Access Team (SER-CAT).  Users of the Facility also have member-only access to insertion device (22-ID) and bending magnet (22-BM) beam lines for remote data collection and processing. Mail-in data collection at these lines are also facilitated through the X-Ray Facility.

Since 2016, X-Ray Facility assists users in scheduling, coordinating synchrotron data collection, long-term sample storage, and sample shipping at National Synchrotron Light Source II using FSU Structural Biology Group’s Block  Allocation Group. Users typically collect data remotely using  Beamline 17-ID-1 (AMX) or Beamline 17-ID-2 (FMX).
