Abstract
An X-ray area detector diffractometer and a tunable monochromomator have been built and installed on a synchrotron radiation line at LURE. The detector, based on techniques used for high energy physics, is a parallax-free multiwire proportional chamber featuring a high count rate, a high efficiency and an accurate and conformal mapping function. The software has been developed by cooperative programming.This apparatus is used for fast acquisition of diffraction data from macromolecular crystals; its characteristics make it especially suitable for multiple wavelength anomalous diffraction measurements.
