Beamline 20-ID-B,C: X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy & LERIX Beamline

X-ray Science Division, APS
Materials Science, Environmental Science, Chemistry

Description

A spectroscopy-based beamline with multiple stations: x-ray Raman (LERIX) spectrometer, x-ray microprobe with beams down to 1 micron. We also support in collaboration with PNC scientists an MBE-capable surface XAFS station, and a surface diffractometer.

 

Supported Techniques

  • X-ray absorption fine structure
  • X-ray Raman scattering
  • Micro x-ray absorption fine structure
  • Microfluorescence (hard x-ray)
  • Time-resolved x-ray absorption fine structure
  • X-ray emission spectroscopy
