From Event: SPIE Optical Engineering + Applications, 2017
A new scanning transmission X-ray microscope (STXM) optimized for cryo-spectro-tomography with soft X-rays has been designed, built and commissioned at Canadian Light Source (CLS) beamline 10ID1 (130-2700 eV). It is controlled via a new python-based software package, pySTXM. A liquid N2 goniometer (Gatan 630, -80° to 80°), mounted on a computer controlled (x,y,Theta) tilt stage allows for spectro-tomographic measurements at cryogenic temperatures (-180°C) which reduces radiation damage. The CLS cryo-STXM is unique among the set of soft X-ray STXMs currently installed around the world. Details of the cryo-STXM design and examples of its performance will be presented.
