RGBL Dipole

Russian German Dipole Beamline

The beamline is based on a Plane Grating Monochromator (PGM); it covers wide and continuous photon energy range and is characterised by moderate flux. It ends with a fixed experimental station RGL-PES that offers a multi-technique approach for the investigation of the electronic, chemical and structural properties of materials: X-ray photoemission spectroscopy and X-ray absorption in all possible modes (fluorescence yield, total and partial electron yields).
