Synchrotron Radiation Facility

Metadata Updated: March 8, 2017

FUNCTION: Studies the effects of UV radiation and X rays on solids, and calibrates X-ray optics, detectors, and instruments.DESCRIPTION: Research focuses on applying X rays to chemical and structural analysis of electronic and optical materials. Structural dynamics are monitored by diffraction carried out at the National Synchrotron Light Source (NSLS) or at major laser plasma X-ray sources, over time scales from picoseconds to hours. Synchrotron techniques elucidate the electronic structure of the ground state, transiently excited states, and photo-transformed states in insulators, semiconductors, and molecular films.INSTRUMENTATION:[HTML_REMOVED] Beamlines X11A and X11B provide intense focused and unfocused X-ray fluence from 2 to 35 keV with an energy resolution of 2 [HTML_REMOVED] 10 -4. Experimental equipment includes apparatus for transmission and fluorescence extended X-ray absorption fine structure (EXAFS).[HTML_REMOVED] Beamline X23B provides intense, focused X-ray fluences from 3 to 11 keV with an energy resolution of 3 [HTML_REMOVED] 10 -4. Experimental equipment includes afour-circle Huber diffractometer and apparatus for transmission, fluorescence, and electron EXAFS.[HTML_REMOVED] Beamline X24C provides intense, focused ultraviolet and X-ray fluences from 1 to 1800 eV with an energy resolution of 1 [HTML_REMOVED] 10 -3([HTML_REMOVED]E/E). There are two large ultra-high-vacuum (UHV) experimental chambers, a reflectometer, and a Space Science and Plasma Diagnostic Instrument Calibration Facility.[HTML_REMOVED] Beamline U4B provides intense focused UV and fluence from 80 to 1200 keV with an energy resolution from 10 -3to 10 -4. Equipment includes UHV photemission and reflectance experimental chambers.
