The 6-BM-B Beamline at the Advanced Photon Source (APS), Argonne National Laboratory, is a bending magnet "white beam" beamline utilizing energy dispersive diffraction (EDD) and X-radiographic imaging techniques in mineral physics and earth materials studies. This beamline is a dedicated high pressure multi-anvil facility equipped with a 250-ton hydraulic press with DIA, Deformation-DIA, and T-cup pressure modules, a Canberra 10-element Ge solid state detector array, and a Prosilica CCD camera for radiographic imaging. This beamline provides experimental capabilities for studying hydrostatic and dynamic phase transformations, equations-of-state, melting processes, steady-state and dynamic rheological properties, as well as transport, thermal, elastic, and acoustic properties to COMPRES affiliated users in United States and abroad.
