X-Ray Pump Probe Station
The XPP/KMC-3 is a hard x-ray beamline dedicated to time-resolved x-ray diffraction and absorption spectroscopy experiments (EXAFS, XANES). It is equipped with an x-ray mirror assembly and a double monochromator, which can be removed from the x-ray beam path to allow for experiments with a monochromatic or a white x-ray beam. The energy range extends from 2 keV to 14 keV. In addition, the beamline comprises an ultrafast laser as a pump source for time-resolved experiments. In the near furture, a four-circle diffractometer setup in a vacuum chamber will allow for sample cooling down to 30°K.
Typical applications of the beamline are:
Currently the beamline is only equipped for time-resolved x-ray diffraction experiments. If you wish to submit a proposal please contact the beamline scientist in advance to discuss the feasibility of your experiment.
