General beamline description and specifications

The PHOENIX (Photons for the Exploration of Nature by Imaging and XAFS) beamline produces a high flux of soft to hard X-rays from an elliptical undulator (APPLE II). Two different endstations at two branches provide the users the necessary tools to perform X-ray microspectroscopic measurements (µ-XAS and µ-XRF). They are described briefly here:

Energy range 0.8 - 8.0 keV PHOENIX I, 0.4 - 2.0 keV PHOENIX II
Flux (3 keV) 1 x 1011 ph/s/0.1%BW/0.4 A
Focused spot size 2.5 µm x 2.5 µm
The Phoenix Group is part of the Laboratory for Synchrotron Radiation and Femtochemistry (LSF).
