Solid state X-ray emission and NEXAFS with extended temperature range for open port use

The SolidFlexRIXS endstation is dedicated to resonant inelastic x-ray scattering (RIXS) and near edge x-ray absorption fine structure (NEXAFS) investigations of solids. It features an x-ray sensitive single photon-counting detector. The endstation works in UHV. The sample holder is mounted on a continuous flow cryostat for measurements down to 100 K. A custom-designed sample holder is available for sample annealing up to 1500 K during experiments.

Selected Applications:
  • XAS, XES, RIXS of solid samples
  • temperature-dependent spin-flip scattering from XES data
  • RIXS-MCD of ferromagnetic materials
  • RIXS of carbon allotropes
