Author(s) from Durham


A new design of a setup for in situ laser irradiation of single crystals during an X-ray diffraction experiment is presented. The system is designed for use with a Bruker three-circle goniometer in combination with a Helix ultra-low-temperature cryostat and consists of a laser mount and a set of three adjustable mirrors. The main advantages of the presented system include a stationary laser mount, the ability to irradiate a sample inside the Be nozzle and no impediments to the goniometer movements.
