The following JBluIce Tabs are currently functional:
On the Hutch Tab users can change energy, attenuate the beam, open/close shutter,
control slits, position CCD detector and align the beam to the goniometer axis.
The Sample Tab provides the crystals view with two video cameras (on-axis microscope
and a lower-resolution camera looking from a perpendicular direction) and the
controls for sample illumination. It also offers diffraction images viewer,
single-click selection of x-ray minibeam collimator, sample annealing, fine beam
position adjustments and various other tools for sample environment.
The Screening Tab contains all the controls needed for screening crystals
and their indexing with WebIce. This Tab also provides controls for the sample
The Raster Tab provides best-in-class controls for searching tiny optically
invisible crystals and finding good spots on poorly diffracting crystals. Both
diffraction and fluorescence modes are available. Rastering can be carried
in fully automatic and user-managed modes. Polygon rastering can be selected
to reduce the number of spots to be inspected with X-rays. The initial search
area can be taken from optical loop centering. The data can be exported to
data collection Tab for collecting partial data sets on multiple crystal spots.
On the Scan Tab users can acquire fluorescent spectra and perform fluorescence
scans around chosen absorption edge in either automatic or advanced controls
mode. The scans implement fast on-the-fly signal collection without stopping
monochromator and automatic detection of the edge shift with respective shift
of fine energy sampling range.
On the Collect tab users can do classic data collection operations such as
composing frame collection sequences and viewing the acquired images.
Besides that, the Collect tab also offers vector data collection.
... and data collection strategy.
On the Analysis Tab users can preview the results of background data processing
that is automatically spanned by JBluIce and runs on the beamline computing cluster.

The Log Tab offers controls for saving the parameters of the experiment.
