Resonant Elastic and Inelastic X-ray Scattering


REIXS beamline is a state-of-the-art soft X-ray scattering facility featuring high flux, high resolution and full polarization control. A wide range of advanced materials can be investigated by various photon-in and photon-out techniques under magnetic fields and at different temperatures.

Please discuss details of your proposal with the beamline scientist prior to submitting your proposal.
