Research at MCX

MCX and its users

The MCX beamline has been operational at Elettra since 2009 and in this relatively short period already hosted a large number of experiments and attracts a larger number of proposals each semester. Proposals requesting beamtime at MCX are submitted to the Elettra Proposal Review Panel for evaluation from heterogeneous group of researchers affiliated with national and international research centers and universities.
Users submitting a proposal for the first time are warmly invited to browse our Publications MCX, in order develop a clear view on the typical applications of our setup and its capabilities.

Research fields

The MCX beamline has a flexible design allowing a wide range of non-single crystal diffraction experiments such as grazing angle diffraction and reflectivity, residual stress and texture analysis, phase identification and structural studies, kinetic studies, anomalous scattering  and operandop battery studies  Research takes place in fields related to materials science, archeometry, geophysics, solid state and superconductors physics, catalysis, sold statre chemistry.
The light source with a useful energy range from 4 to 21 keV and the availability of a four circle goniometer make MCX a powerful tool: some examples of MCX applications can be found in our Highlights section.
