Beamline 4-ID-D

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

It's primary research focus is on magnetic spectroscopy measurements at energies between 2.5 and 30 keV. 

  • X-ray magnetic circular dichroism.
  • Magnetic x-ray scattering.
  • X-ray magnetic reflectivity studies.

Novel Magnetic Material Under Extreme Stress

September 15, 2011

Ferromagnetic materials are key ingredients in many technologies, but exposing them to compressive stress usually destroys their magnetism, limiting their applications. Recent research on beamline 4-ID-D has found a material, La2NiMnO6, which bucks this trend and exhibits robust ferromagnetism.
