We discuss the construction of a new SAXS/WAXS beamline at the Advanced Light Source at Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory. The beamline is equipped with a multilayer monochromator in order to obtain a high X-ray flux. The detrimental effects that the increased bandwidth transmitted by this monochromator could have on the data quality of the SAXS and WAXS patterns is shown to be negligible for the experimental program intended to be operated on this beamline.
