BMBF diffractometer

beam time at DORIS III (M. Buchholz).

Within a project funded by the German Ministry for Science and Education the HZB and the Institute of Physics II of Cologne University are setting up a UHV diffractometer for soft x-ray scattering experiments at PETRA III and FLASH. The instrument will offer a high flexibility for soft x-ray scattering experiments including pump-probe soft x-ray diffraction and coherent diffraction. Several detectors including an in-vacuum CCD camera and a polarization analyzer can be easily interchanged during the experiment. The new instrument will start operation in mid-2012.

Scientists, who are interested to use this experiment please contact Dr. Christian Schüßler-Langeheine.
