A new hard X-ray beamline, BL15, has been designed and constructed at the SAGA-Light Source. The beamline is optimized for industrial applications of the synchrotron light. X-rays with photon energies from 2.1 keV to 14.2 keV are delivered to the experimental station passing a fixed-exit double-crystal Si(111) monochromator and a bent cylindrical mirror. Basic experimental equipments for XAFS measurement, high resolution diffractometry, various kinds of X-ray imaging and energy-dispersive diffractometry have been prepared for the station. From our initial commissioning and performance testing of the beamline, we show that BL15 can perform XAFS measurements.
