Welcome to the PNC/XSD Facility


PNC/XSD comprises both the bending magnet and undulator beamlines at Sector 20 of the Advanced Photon Source.

Research at our facility focuses primarily on spectroscopic  (XAFS, XRS, time-resolved) and microbeam (microprobe mapping, micro-XAFS, micro-Diffraction) applications of hard X-rays.

On this website, you should find here most, if not all of the information relevant to accessing and using the PNC/XSD beamlines. If you feel something is missing or is in need of further clarification, please contact us.
