Experiments DetailsBeam line 6-2 (middle hutch) is a wiggler end-station beam line for High Resolution Hard X-ray Spectroscopy. The end-station combines three multi-crystal analyzer spectrometers that enable X-ray Emission Spectroscopy (XES), Resonant Inelastic X-ray Scattering (RIXS), High-Energy Resolution Fluorescence Detected X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy (HERFD-XAS) and X-ray Raman Spectroscopy (XRS) techniques. An energy-dispersive von Hamos geometry spectrometer is available for time-resolved studies. The end-station provides high flexibility of implementing various sample environments, including a liquid-He cryostat for routine low temperature measurements.
