Beamline 6-ID-B,C: Resonant and Magnetic Scattering

X-ray Science Division, APS
Physics, Materials Science

Description

6-ID-B,C is the main branch beamline on sector 6. It's primary focus is on magnetic x-ray scattering and general diffraction experiments using a Huber ψ-diffractometer located in the B experimental station. The B station also is equipped with a second diffractometer for scattering in applied magnetic fields (4 Tesla continuous; upto 30 Tesla pulsed).
