The beamline provides a monochromatic beam of hard x-rays in the 3.5 - 30 keV range. The x-ray source is a 7 Tesla multipole superconducting wiggler with a critical energy of 13.4 keV at current operating conditions. The beamline optics consist of a Si(111) double crystal monochromator and a pair of retractable collimating/focussing mirrors.
The available beamtime is shared between two experiments: an x-ray diffraction experiment specially equipped for magnetic scattering (MAGS) measurements, as well as general purpose diffraction, and a small angle x-ray scattering experiment (SAXS).
