Title: Design and performance of a compact collimator on GM/CA-CAT at the Advanced Photon Source.

Abstract

A new macromolecular crystallographic facility developed by The General Medicine and Cancer Institutes Collaborative Access Team (GM/CA-CAT) at the Advanced Photon Source (APS) is a part of the Biosciences Division (BIO), Argonne National Laboratory (ANL). The facility consists of three beamlines: two lines based on the first 'hard' dual canted undulators and one bending magnet beamline. Several compact collimator systems have been developed for the purpose of background reduction in macromolecular crystallography experiments. The apparatus consists of a tube collimator, pinhole and kinematics mount. This paper will present a series of compact collimator designs and crystallographic applications based on experimental requirements. We also describe the magnet-based kinematic mounting structures developed as a collimator holder.
