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.

Superconductivity and nickelates

Cuprates (copper oxides) are currently used as highest temperature (-135° C) superconductors. Scientists are trying to find new candidates for which this temperature would be even higher. This involves understanding in detail the electronic mechanisms involved between the elements composing the superconductor. [Full story]
