RIXS endstation for molecular systems
This endstation is a two-circle diffractometer equipped with a large acceptance angle photodiode to measure fluorescence yield absorption spectra at various angles (the diode is protected by a biased mesh from photoelectrons), as well as diffraction with a smaller photodiode. It prominently features an X-ray emission spectrometer (Graze 4, commercialized by Scienta as XES 350) with an X-ray sensitized, single-photon counting MCP detector. The sample azimuth can be rotated by hand in-situ. All other motors are software controlled by SPEC, which also interfaces with the emission spectrometer detector readout for partial fluorescence yield studies as well as for recording RIXS maps.
