A new user resource for the characterization of complex biological and environmental systems
ABEX, located at Berkeley Lab's Advanced Light Source, is a DOE OBER funded User Facility for X-ray spectroscopic characterization of complex biological and environmental systems using these tools:
ABEX has a instrument development program aimed at providing:
ABEX's spectroscopy support laboratory is equipped with the following:
The long-range goals of ABEX are to provide facilities to understand fundamental processes in biological and environmental biochemistry related to DOE energy-related challenges, to develop soft x-ray spectroscopy techniques, and to cultivate a knowledgeable community of users and programs.
