Title: High-energy-resolution diced spherical quartz analyzers for resonant inelastic X-ray scattering

Abstract

A novel diced spherical quartz analyzer for use in resonant inelastic X-ray scattering (RIXS) is introduced, achieving an unprecedented energy resolution of 10.53 meV at the IrL3absorption edge (11.215 keV). In this work the fabrication process and the characterization of the analyzer are presented, and an example of a RIXS spectrum of magnetic excitations in a Sr3Ir2O7sample is shown.

Fig. 1. Fig. 1. : Analyzer energy resolution for different crystal analyzer materials at the Ir L3 absorption edge (E=11.215 keV), the length of the dash marker for each reflection represents the relative integrated reflectivity. The analyzer energy resolution shown in the figure is approximated as ∆$E$$a$= $\sqrt{∆E^{2}_{i}$ + ∆E^{2}_{g}}$ , wheremore » ∆$E$$i$ and ∆$E$$g$ are the intrinsic and detector geometrical contributions respectively, the latter calculated for a 2 m diameter Rowland circle and a strip detector pitch of 50 µm. These contributions are described in more detail in earlier work (Gog et al., 2013).« less
