Germanium monochromator crystals have arrived!

Voici, the 24 monochromator tiles that we have had made! They make up a 30cm high focussing monochromator for our diffractometer and are therefore key components of PEARL! Will do some prelimenary testing soon, but the proper alignment will be done only beginning next year.
