We have the world prototype stable (CE-certified) high-frequency
18 kW, 60 keV Rotating Anode source, specifically modified for flexible
experiments in Physics.
We have a variety of general
instrumentation including a state-of-the-art curved crystal spectrometer
and a state-of-the-art backgammon detector (developed here with cooperation
from NIST). In other areas we continue to develop x-ray
optics, based on ARC LIEF and DP ARC grants.
High Vacuum systems
A variety of specialised medium and soft x-ray sources
Monochromation and dispersion devices including Johann spectrometers
and double-flat crystal mounts
A variety of detectors including X-ray CCD cameras and photographic
We have good computer facilities
and access to other facilities here such as the microprobe MicroAnalytical
Research Centre (MARC) and the Australian Synchrotron.
