Synchrotron X-ray Measurements

Main Question or Discussion Point

I am curious about a question. in synchrotron station,people use x ray to do kinds of experiments.
They use the x ray ,how do they know the characteristic(like wavelength,brightness) of the ray they use. Does they measure the x ray when they use it simultaneously? Does this have an bad effect on
the stability of the x ray? if they characterization before application,is this too troublesome? how they actually change between characterization and application? Thank you!!

This is a well developed field in both engineering and science. The x-ray sources are very stable, and are controlled.

They are always working on improved methods; for example see:

thank you sir,I have read the materials on the website! how do they measure x rays? after the measure, they should use them,but where is the measurement intruments. Does they block the
x ray or they are removed?

The first article tells you how they measure the X-rays.
