GALAXIES beamline

Research Contents / Beamlines / GALAXIES: IXS - HAXPES

The GALAXIES beamline is dedicated to inelastic x-ray scattering (IXS) and hard x-ray photoemission (HAXPES). These spectroscopic techniques are powerful probes to characterize the electronic properties of materials. The beamline is optimized to operate in the 2.3 et 12 keV energy range with high resolution and micro beam.

GALAXIES expanded  

The GALAXIES beamline has now reached full speed with the complete opening of the RIXS and HAXPES endstations to users and the publication of the first scientific results. In a recent article issued in J. Synchrotron Radiation, the GALAXIES team provides the technical details and performances of the beamline optics and endstations, along with a selection of scientific results in materials science and diluted phases.
