    Station 16.3 is a high-resolution X-ray diffraction beamline at Daresbury Laboratory Synchrotron Radiation Source. The data presented demonstrate the high-resolution available on the station utilising the recently commissioned four-reflection Si 1 1 1 monochromator and three-reflection Si 1 1 1 analyser. For comparison, a reciprocal space map of the two-bounce Si 1 1 1 monochromator and two-bounce analyser is also shown. Operation of the station is illustrated with examples for silicon. and for diamond. Lattice parameter variations were measured with accuracies in the part per million range and lattice tilts at the are second level (DuMond. Phys. Rev. 52 (1937) 872). (C) 2001 Elsevier Science B.V.
