Beamline 4-ID-C

Beamline 4-ID-C is operated by the Magnetic Materials Group in the X-ray Science Division (XSD) of the Advanced Photon Source.

Research on this beamline focuses on the study of magnetic properties of interfaces and dilute systems using x-ray spectroscopy techniques at energies between 500 to 2500 eV.

Recent Research Highlights

Stretching a boring material can lead to new functionality

September 30, 2010

The oxide compound europium titanate is pretty boring on its own. Research on beamlines 4-ID-C and 6-ID, however, show that this compound takes on remarkable new properties when its confined to nanometer films and properly stretched through growth on an appropriate substrate material.
