The BL1.1W experimental station is installed inside a radiation shielded hutch. Magnetic locks and trap keys were installed as part of the hutch PSS to block access when x-rays are presence inside the hutch. There are also EMERGENCY buttons inside and outside the hutch to shut the beamline main shutter in the case of emergency. The following procedures must be taken to access the experimental station during experiments.
XAS scan is a LABVIEW based in-house developed application for XAS data collection at the BL1.1W.
Some programs for data analysis are installed in the beamline computers. These are free programs which could also be downloaded from the developers’ website.
XAS: Demeter (https://bruceravel.github.io/demeter/)
XRF: PyMCA (http://pymca.sourceforge.net/index.html)
WAXS: SAXSIT (http://www.slri.or.th/th/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=276%3Asaxsit-page&catid=55%3Abl13w&Itemid=85), Fit2D (http://www.esrf.eu/computing/scientific/FIT2D/)
Measured data will be accessible from the computer dedicated to data analysis and users must have their own USB flash drive to save the data. The data will be available to save during the beamtime. After the beamtime, access to the data will be restricted only to beamline staffs and made available upon request.
The XAS data collected at BL1.1W is in ASCII format which could be directly used by XAS data analysis programs such as ATHENA in Demeter. Some measurements information such as energy step and energy range will be written in the file header. The data collected from XAS scan will be saved to the BL1.1W network storage.
