This project supports the construction of new research infrastructure at the European Synchrotron Source ESRF in Grenoble. Among other samples, geomaterials are examined with hard X-rays at ID27: microscopic samples are placed in diamond anvil cells, brought to pressure and temperature conditions of the Earth, and are characterized with X-ray diffraction and X-ray fluorescence analysis in terms of crystal structure and composition.
