ID32 is an intense source of polarized soft x-rays that is principally used to probe magnetism in a diverse range of systems with x-ray magneto-optical techniques and to study the electronic structure of materials using x-ray and photoelectron emission techniques. The photon energy is tunable in the range 0.4-1.6 keV making it ideal for studying the magnetic and electronic properties of 3d transition metals and rare earths since the L-edges (2p) and M-edges (3d) lie in this energy range. The x-ray beam polarisation can also be fully chosen; circular, linear vertical, and linear horizontal beam polarisation rates are all ~100 %.
The beamline is equipped with:
We can also adapt to a variety of user experimental stations.
