Title: Contrast and stability improvements for XPCS measurements at beamline 8-ID-I at the APS.

Abstract

We have embarked upon a systematic program to optimize all aspects of small-angle-x-ray-scattering x-ray photon-correlation spectroscopy experiments performed at beamline 8-ID-I at the Advanced Photon Source (APS). We describe two recent efforts, namely better synchronized CCD shutter control and a re-engineered experiment station layout that has resulted in a 70% increase in optical contrast and a greater than 300% increase in experiment stability. Together these two improvements extend the dynamic range of time scales that can be probed at APS beamline 8-ID-I by one decade.
