    Optimization of the pin-hole collimation

    A new article has just been published in the Journal of Applied Crystallography on a mathematical method for the selection of the optimum collimation parameters:

    This is the method we routinely use on CREDO to obtain the highest possible flux while the beam is free from parasitic scattering.
