Laboratory and synchrotron images

Beamtime at Advanced Photon Source (beamline 11-D-B; Argonne National Laboratories, Chicago, USA)

Here I am preparing the samples that will be analysed using synchrotron-based pair distribution function (PDF). Samples are kept in kapton tubes, as shown in the bottom left inset.
