The Diamond Beamline I13L is dedicated to imaging on the micro- and nano-lengthsale, operating in the energy range
between 6 and 30keV. For this purpose two independently operating branchlines and endstations have been built. The
imaging branch is fully operational for micro-tomography and in-line phase contrast imaging with micrometre
resolution. Grating interferometry is currently implemented, adding the capability of measuring phase and small-angle
information. For tomography with increased resolution a full-field microscope providing 50nm spatial resolution with a
field of view of 100μm is being tested. The instrument provides a large working distance between optics and sample to
adapt a wide range of customised sample environments. On the coherence branch coherent diffraction imaging
techniques such as ptychography, coherent X-ray diffraction (CXRD) are currently developed for three dimensional
imaging with the highest resolution.
The imaging branch is operated in collaboration with Manchester University, called therefore the Diamond-Manchester
Branchline. The scientific applications cover a large area including bio-medicine, materials science, chemistry geology
and more. The present paper provides an overview about the current status of the beamline and the science addressed.
