Beamline Layout

The NanoXAS beamline uses a bending magnet and a toroidal Pt coated first mirror to focus the light. The monochromator has two choices of gratings (300 l/mm Ni and 600 l/mm Au).
Layout of the NanoXAS beamline
The NanoXAS beamline shares design and components with the x07da (PolLux) beamline described in the following publications:
