CMS has capillary holders that can hold 15 capillaries each. The holders are on universal (magnetic/kinematic) bases, allowing very rapid swapping between holders.
Heated Capillary Holder
An alternate bracket for the capillary holder allows heating of the samples. The holder can reach ~220C in vacuum, and at least 100C when operated in air.
A simple bar allows multiple (~10) thin film samples on substrates to be loaded at once. Each sample can be measured by translating the setup sideways. The bars are affixed to universal bases (magnetic/kinematic), allowing rapid switching of samples.
Heated GISAXS Bar
The heated GISAXS bar allows multiple samples to be heated together. The holder can reach ~250C in vacuum.
Specialized sample environments can be created on an ad-hoc basis. Please contact beamline staff to discuss this possibility well ahead of any beamtime.
As an example, the motion positioning stages can be used as a crude tensile/stretching setup:
CMS can accommodate a wide range of user-supplied sample environments. For instance, users have brought specialized heated stages, tensile/stretching stages, and customized in-situ film deposition systems.
