The beamline includes X-ray optical devices which control the bandwidth , photon flux, beam dimensions, focus, and collimation of the rays. The optical devices include slits, attenuators, crystal monochromators , and mirrors. The mirrors may be bent into curves or toroidal shapes to focus the beam. A high photon flux in a small area is the most common requirement of a beamline. The design of the beamline will vary with the application. At the end of the beamline is the experimental end station, where samples are placed in the line of the radiation, and detectors are positioned to measure the resulting diffraction , scattering or secondary radiation.
This book deals with diffraction radiation, which implies the boundary problems of electromagnetic radiation theory. Diffraction radiation is generated when a. Potylitsyn, Alexander Petrovich; Ryazanov, Mikhail Ivanovich; Strikhanov, Mikhail Nikolaevich; Tishchenko, Alexey Alexandrovich.
Synchrotron light is an ideal tool for many types of research in materials science , physics , and chemistry and is used by researchers from academic, industrial, and government laboratories. Several methods take advantage of the high intensity, tunable wavelength, collimation, and polarization of synchrotron radiation at beamlines which are designed for specific kinds of experiments. The high intensity and penetrating power of synchrotron X-rays enables experiments to be performed inside sample cells designed for specific environments.
Samples may be heated, cooled, or exposed to gas, liquid, or high pressure environments. Experiments which use these environments are called in situ and allow the characterization of atomic- to nano-scale phenomena which are inaccessible to most other characterization tools. In operando measurements are designed to mimic the real working conditions of a material as closely as possible.
X-ray diffraction XRD and scattering experiments are performed at synchrotrons for the structural analysis of crystalline and amorphous materials. These measurements may be performed on powders , single crystals , or thin films. The high resolution and intensity of the synchrotron beam enables the measurement of scattering from dilute phases or the analysis of residual stress.
Materials can be studied at high pressure using diamond anvil cells to simulate extreme geologic environments or to create exotic forms of matter. X-ray crystallography of proteins and other macromolecules PX or MX are routinely performed. Synchrotron-based crystallography experiments were integral to solving the structure of the ribosome ;   this work earned the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in The atomic- to nano-scale details of surfaces , interfaces, and thin films can be characterized using techniques such as X-ray reflectivity XRR and crystal truncation rod CTR analysis.
Amorphous materials, including liquids and melts, as well as crystalline materials with local disorder, can be examined using X-ray pair distribution function analysis, which requires high energy X-ray scattering data. By tuning the beam energy through the absorption edge of a particular element of interest, the scattering from atoms of that element will be modified.
These so-called resonant anomalous X-ray scattering methods can help to resolve scattering contributions from specific elements in the sample.
Other scattering techniques include energy dispersive X-ray diffraction , resonant inelastic X-ray scattering , and magnetic scattering. X-ray absorption spectroscopy XAS is used to study the coordination structure of atoms in materials and molecules. The synchrotron beam energy is tuned through the absorption edge of an element of interest, and modulations in the absorption are measured. Photoelectron transitions cause modulations near the absorption edge, and analysis of these modulations called the X-ray absorption near-edge structure XANES or near-edge X-ray absorption fine structure NEXAFS reveals information about the chemical state and local symmetry of that element.
At incident beam energies which are much higher than the absorption edge, photoelectron scattering causes "ringing" modulations called the extended X-ray absorption fine structure EXAFS. Fourier transformation of the EXAFS regime yields the bond lengths and number of the surrounding the absorbing atom; it is therefore useful for studying liquids and amorphous materials  as well as sparse species such as impurities.
serthanquede.gq A related technique, X-ray magnetic circular dichroism XMCD , uses circularly polarized X-rays to measure the magnetic properties of an element. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy XPS can be performed at beamlines equipped with a photoelectron analyzer. Traditional XPS is typically limited to probing the top few nanometers of a material under vacuum. However, the high intensity of synchrotron light enables XPS measurements of surfaces at near-ambient pressures of gas.
The probing depth of synchrotron XPS can therefore be lengthened to several nanometers, allowing the study of buried interfaces. Material composition can be quantitatively analyzed using X-ray fluorescence XRF. XRF detection is also used in several other techniques, such as XAS and XSW, in which it is necessary to measure the change in absorption of a particular element.
Synchrotron X-rays can be used for traditional X-ray imaging , phase-contrast X-ray imaging , and tomography.
