Title: The beamline ID32 at the ESRF for soft X-ray high energy resolution resonant inelastic X-ray scattering and polarisation dependent X-ray absorption spectroscopy

Abstract

Here, the ID32 Soft X-ray Beamline line is an ESRF upgrade beamline for X-ray absorption (XAS) and Resonant Inelastic X-ray Scattering (RIXS) spectroscopic studies. It was opened to Users in October 2014 and provides polarised soft X-rays in the 400–1600 eV energy range. It has two branches: One branch has been designed for X-ray magnetic dichroism experiments, both linear (XMLD) and circular (XMCD), with high sensitivity, reproducibility, flexibility, user friendliness and the capability for fast energy scanning. The X-ray beam is available in two experimental areas, one with a dedicated superconducting high field magnet and a sample preparation facility, the second area being open for User instruments. The other branch is dedicated to very high energy resolution Resonant Inelastic X-ray Scattering experiments with a combined resolving power up to 30 000 around 930 eV. A scattering arm which is continuously variable under UHV vacuum over 100 degrees and a four-circle sample goniometer allows accurate positioning of the sample to enable 3D mapping of q space. Combined with the possibility of polarisation analysis of the outgoing photons the beamline provides a state-of-the-art soft X-ray RIXS facility.
