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

At the Boundary between Superconducting and Magnetic Oxides

April 12, 2006

The transistor, which shaped so much of our modern technology, grew out of scientists’ desire to gain a greater understanding of the interfaces between different materials. In the same way, today’s materials scientists seek to expand our understanding of complex oxides by creating new states at the interface of two materials.
