Abstract : Synchrotron radiation is produced when highly energetic charged particles are deviated in a magnetic field. The generated spectrum consists of a large energy range from infrared to gamma X-rays. Harder X-ray ranges require larger synchrotron storage rings. Recent rings offer simultaneously energy tunability for photons with high brightness, high photon fluxes, and low divergence [1]. Photon energy tunability and variable polarization provide chemical, electronic structure and/or magnetic sensitivity. The tunable penetration depth using glancing incident and/or exit scattering angles enables the study of buried interfaces. Importantly, X-ray techniques, especially at high photon energies, can be used with various sample environments including (and not limited to) high pressure, ...
