Beamline description

The SEXTANTS beamline offers three experimental technics of soft x-ray scattering:

- Inelastic scattering (IXS)/ Resonant Inelastic x-ray Scattering (RIXS)

- Magnetic x-ray resonant scattering (XRMS)

- Imaging by coherent scattering (CXI) and by x-ray Fourier Transform Holography (FTH)
