Abstract: We present here a multiscale, multimodal, end station at the Coherence Branch, I13, at the Diamond Light Source (DLS). The core modality of the beamline is x-ray ptychography, which combines coherent diffraction imaging (CDI) with scanning transmission x-ray microscopy STXM to produce quantitative electron density maps of extended samples at the nanoscale. The Coherence Branch is a hard x-ray beamline (6-30keV) with a large lateral coherence length and spacious experimental hutch. It is uniquely placed for the ptychographic imaging of samples across the length scales (from nanometres to millimetres), in varying modalities (from transmission to Bragg), and with the flexibility to map additional signals, such as XRF, giving way to elemental mapping.
