Beam line 13-3 utilizes a spherical grating monochromator on an elliptical polarized undulator (EPU) operating in the photon energy range from 230 eV to 1700 eV with full polarization control (linear vertical/horizontal and circular left/right) covering the C, O, F K-edges, 3d transition metal L-edges, and 4f rare-earth element M-edges.
The primary experimental station at BL13-3 is optimized for Resonant Soft X-ray Scattering (RSXS). In addition, X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy (XAS) and X-ray Magnetic Circular Dichroism (XMCD) via a permanent magnet with a limited field strength (<0.1 Tesla) can be performed using either fluorescence yield (FY) or total electron yield (TEY).
The RSXS end-station operates at UHV (<10-9 Torr) and is equipped with a limited-angle 4-circle goniometer and a 3-axis sample positioner with temperature control from 18K to ~400K. The RSXS detectors include Schottky barrier photodiodes with variable slits, a high quantum efficiency Channeltron, and a 2D-CCD detector that can be translated vertically and covers a wide area. The angular range of the detector can cover angles up to ~176° depending on the detector.
