CARNAÚBA (Coherent X-Ray Nanoprobe Beamline) is a state-of-the-art multi-technique beamline at the 4th-generation Sirius Light Source at the Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory (LNLS), with achromatic optics and fully-coherent X-ray beam in the energy range between 2.05 and 15 keV. At the TARUMÃ station, the in-vacuum KB focusing system has been designed with a large working distance of 440 mm, allowing for a broad range of independent sample environments to be developed in open atmosphere to benefit from the spot size between 550 to 120 nm with a flux in the order of 1e11 ph/s/100mA. Hence, together with a number of different detectors that can be simultaneously used, a wide variety of studies of organic and inorganic materials and systems are possible using cutting-edge X-ray-based techniques in theμand nanoscale, including coherent diffractive imaging (CDI), fluorescence (XRF), optical luminescence (XEOL), absorption spectroscopy (XAS), and diffraction (XRD). Even though samples over the centimeter range can be taken at Tarumã, the small beam and relatively low energies point towards optimized and reduced-size sample holders for in situ experiments. This work describes two related setups that have been developed in-house: a small-volume electrochemical cell with static fluid*; and another multifunctional environment that can be used both as a microfluidic device and as an electrochemistry cell that allows for fluid control over samples deposited on a working electrode. The mechanical design of the devices, as well as the architecture for the fluid and electrical supply systems, according to the precision engineering concepts required for nanopositioning performance, are described in details.
