Vertical Guide Changer
A vertical guide changer is incorporated towards the end of the guide that can exchange the regular supermirror guide with an S-bender polarizer. The compact design of the supermirror-coated Silicon in the S-bender substantially enhances FLEXX polarization capabilities.
The remainder of the guide beyond this vertical guide changer is flanked by Nd2Fe14B guide field magnets while a guide field in the monochromator region is provided by Helmholtz coils to maintain optimal polarization up to the sample position. Thus it is now quick and easy to change the FLEXX setup between standard, non-polarised measurements and polarization analysis mode.
