ABSTRACT

This beamline, together with its sister beamline BL16B2, is a contract beamline designed and constructed by an industrial consortium of 13 companies to characterize various materials for industrial purpose. Apparatuses for X-ray diffraction, hard X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, X-ray microscopy and X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy are installed and utilized for development of various industrial materials.

EXPERIMENTAL STATIONS

Apparatuses for X-ray diffraction, hard X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, X-ray microscopy are installed in tandem. A space is prepared at the most downstream side for user’s bringing-in device. The X-ray fluorescence spectrometer is carried into the hutch when used.

  • Hard X-ray photoelectron spectrometer (Fig. 1)
    • Total energy resolution is less than 250 meV with excitation energy of 6 keV, 8 keV and 10 keV.
    • Charge neutralizer by co-irradiation of low-energy electrons and Ar+ ions is equipped.
    • Air-sensitive samples can be introduced into the spectrometer without atmospheric exposure by using dedicated sample transfer vessel.

  • X-ray diffractometer (Fig. 2)
    • An 8-axis diffractometer is installed and used for X-ray diffraction, X-ray reflectivity, grazing incidence X-ray scattering and others.
    • Various types of detectors such as NaI (Tl), YAP (Ce) scintillation counter, one-dimensional detector (Mythen) and two-dimensional detector (PILATUS 100K and PILATUS 300K) are available.
