The MAGS (resonant Magnetic Scattering) beamline and experiment are designed for hard x-ray scattering techniques and can be used to complement the facilities for neutron scattering at BER II.
A detailed beamline and experimental endstation description and a list of publications can be found here.
The flexible beamline layout is suitable for several techniques, such as:
The MAGS experimental endstation consists of a Huber 5021 six circle diffractometer (psi geometry). It can be used in both vertical and horizontal scattering geometry and is mounted on an yz-translating table.
Its detector arm can be fitted with a three-circle analyser. This can be used as a secondary monochromator for background suppression as well as a linear polarisation analyser. A set of crystals is available to cover the full experimental energy range.
