REIXS - Resonant Elastic and Inelastic X-ray Scattering

A state-of-the-art soft X-ray scattering facility featuring high flux, high resolution and full polarization control. Suitable for studying novel and advanced quantum materials, including strongly correlated electron systems, spintronic materials, high Tc superconductor, nano-scale biomaterials, and more.

Spectral Range

95 - 2000 eV



  • Resonant Soft X-ray Scattering (RSXS)


  • Resonant Inelastic X-ray Scattering (RIXS)
  • X-ray Magnetic Circular Dichroism (XMCD)
  • X-ray Magnetic Linear Dichroism (XMLD)

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.
