Classical XAS station: multi-element solid state detection

  • Beam size: 100x300 µm2
  • Energy range: 4.8 to 40keV
  • Detection systems:
    • Transmission mode: diodes collecting photons scattered by air in a black chamber for both incident and transmited intensity measurements
    • Fluorescence mode: 30-element Ge detector (resolution about 300eV)
  • Sample environment: any system weighting less than 100 kg, with convenient windows. See Sample environments page.




Micro-beam XAS station

Will be available after the ESRF long shut-down in July 2020.

  • Beam size: 10x10 µm2 obtained by a Kirkpatrick-Baez system.
  • Energy range: 4.8 to 20 keV
  • Detection system: Vortex SDD fluorescence detector
  • Sample environment: possible sample environments are limited by the small available space. Diamond anvil cells can be used as well as heating systems such as Linkam ones. See Sample environments page.
