Cryogenic linear quadrupole ion trap with 5 T superconductiong solenoid for x-ray magnetic linear dichroism spectroscopy of size-selected clusters, molecular ions, and complexes. Because of its complexity, this experiment requires thorough consultation with the scientist in charge. Please contact us well ahead of time to discuss experimental feasibility.
