The P64 X-ray absorption spectroscopy beamline (PETRA III, DESY, Hamburg) has started to operate in a user mode since May 2017 and shows a continuous progress.

The beamline is dedicated to X-Ray Absorption Spectroscopy (XAS) experiments which require high flux:

  • EXAFS of highly diluted systems (ppm range),
  • Quick EXAFS measurements on a timescale of 10ms – 10s with a special monochromator and ion chambers
  • Experiments with energy resolution of less than 0.5 eV by means of a von Hamos spectrometer.
