CMCF-ID

  Upgrade In Progress

CMCF-ID-endstation-gray.png

CMCF-ID is currently undergoing a major upgrade. We expect to return to normal operations in 2021, brighter, faster, and better than ever before.

CMCF-BM

  Maintenance & Development

CMCF-BM Schematic

CMCF-BM has recently been upgraded for faster throughput and is ideal for MX, XRF/EXAFS on single crystals, Chemical Crystallography & XRD.

CLS is in maintenance and development modes for the spring shutdown. During this time, CMCF is focussing on the upgrade project. Experiments will continue on CMCF-BM at the end of May, and on CMCF-ID after commissioning is complete.

CMCF is an umbrella facility which operates two beamlines, CMCF-ID and CMCF-BM, at the Canadian Light Source. Together, both beamlines enable high-resolution structural studies of proteins, nucleic acids and other macromolecules, satisfying the requirements of the most challenging and diverse crystallographic experiments.
