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.

An Electronic Dance of Spins and Orbits

December 9, 2010

Materials with significant spin-orbit interactions are currently an area of intense research. A study carried out on beamline 4-ID-D indicates how an Iridium-containing oxide material displays such coupling, making it a potential candidate for novel spintronic applications.
