U49-2_PGM-1

U49-2_PGM-1 Undulator PGM horizontal polarisation

This beamline has high photon flux, small focus spot, and moderate energy resolution. It is dedicated to studies of various soft X-ray spectroscopies.

Selected Applications:
  • X-ray absorption spectroscopy
  • X-ray emission spectroscopy
  • X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy
  • Resonant inelastic X-ray scattering
