The beamline provides a broad set of tools for the study of electronic structure in molecules, liquids and solids and solid-liquid/vapour/gas interfaces. It features support for ambient pressure sample environments for both photon-in-photon-out techniques and photoemission. This allows studying samples under real conditions for applications such as thin-film growth, ALD, Li-based batteries, corrosion processes, dye-sensitised solar cells, electrochemistry, catalysis etc. Users of the beamline range from diverse fields such as material sciences, catalysis research and biochemistry. The techniques employed at the beamline include resonant inelastic X-ray scattering (RIXS) and ambient pressure X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (APXPS) on two different branches. Both branches can be used to collect near-edge X-ray fine structure (NEXAFS) data through partial- and total electron/photon yield techniques.
