Abstract : Chambre d'Analyse Spectrométrique en Transmission ou en Réflexion (Analysis Chamber for Transmission or Reflection Spectrometry) (CASTOR) is a new instrument, operated at the SOLEIL synchrotron facility, dedicated to the metrological characterization of thin films with thicknesses in the nanometer range. The instrument can combine two X-ray techniques, namely, the reflectivity (XRR) measurements with fluorescence (XRF) acquisitions and especially total-reflection X-ray fluorescence (TXRF)-related techniques such as grazing-incidence XRF (GIXRF). The instrument is most often installed on the hard X-ray branch of the Metrology beamline. Geometrical characterization is presented, reproducibility of measurements is studied, and the reference-free GIXRF analysis is described. Some representative examples are given to illustrate the capabilities of the setup and the combined analysis procedure.
