REIXS supports material samples in a variety of forms, including thin films, single crystals, pressed pellets, metal chunks, and powders. Sample size should be kept to a minimum with the maximum size not exceeding 10 mm X 10 mm in area and must be stable in ultra high vacuum. REIXS offers a range of sample temperatures 20 – 450 K and magnetic fields up to 0.7 T.

Please contact REIXS staff to discuss you specific experiment needs. More sample  information is available on the REIXS website.
