Beamtime over
Friday the 27th of July 2012 at 19:14, permalink:, edit

I've just returned from the Institute Laue-Langevin (ILL) in Grenoble, France, where I've been on a super-short beamtime at the neutron Laue instrument OrientExpress. This was my first time to the ILL, and I was going there on my own. That was confusing! The airport in Lyon has really bad signing, but I found my way (after a while of wandering around not understanding anything, I might add..).

I was measuring on two new LSCO crystals, to see how many single crystals was in them. Both of them actually came from one crystal, but it broke into two during the oxygenation process. It seems like they are possibly full single crystals, a great result, but they might have a splitting in the length direction (they are cylindrical) - which is kind of a mess to cut up. I guess I will have to do some X-ray Laue images to see if that is the case.
