    Abstract

    SRS station 16.3 is now a fully scheduled user facility for high-resolution and high-energy single-crystal X-ray diffraction. It is based on a large three-axis diffractometer, designed and constructed at Daresbury for a wide range of physics and materials science applications. Served by wiggler 16 (a 6 T superconducting wavelength-shifter), the station has access to a broad spectrum of photon energies, extending to over 50 keV, and is designed for simple polarization-state tuning by motorized height adjustment of all optical components. This paper outlines the key design features and some of the science projects carried out during the first year of operation.
