Welcome to the X26A X-ray microprobe beamline at the National Synchrotron Light Source, Brookhaven National Lab. X26A is a synchrotron-based Hard X-Ray Microprobe facility dedicated to the development and application of x-ray microbeam analytical techniques (e.g. microprobe, microspectroscopy, microdiffraction, microtomography) in geochemistry and environmental sciences. The beamline supports experimental applications of the X-ray microprobe to chemistry, biology, material science, etc. through the NSLS's General User program. The participating research team (PRT) that funds, supports and operates the beamline is made up of scientists from the University of Chicago's Center for Advanced Radiation Sources (CARS), The University of Kentucky's College of Agriculture, and Brookhaven National Laboratory's Department of Environmental Sciences. This web-page is intended to provided information for existing and interested future users about beamline status, contact information, links to help users make sure they have all the necessary information and paperwork completed before arrival, and general information about the capabilities of the beamline and future upgrades. As always, if the information you seek isn't here, feel free to contact us. Thanks.

No new proposals being accepted at this time. X26A will cease operations September 30, 2014. To inquire about potential access prior to that date please contact Tony Lanzirotti.
