XMaS: The UK Materials Science Facility at the ESRF

qXMaS Synchrotron Facility

XMaS is an EPSRC funded National Research Facility supporting the UK materials science communities. It provides free at the point of access to synchrotron radiation at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility in Grenoble. A wide range of sample environments allow a diverse set of experiments to be performed using energies in the 2.4 to 15 keV range. Additional facilities exploiting these sample environments are possible using our laboratory spaces which include a new micro-source x-ray facility.

Techniques Available

A wide range of x-ray techniques are available making use of white beam and monochromatic energies in the range of 2.4 to 15 keV:

Offline Facilities

X-ray Source

A Cu micro-source is available for use with most of the sample environments used on the main beamline

Laboratory Space

Electrical and magnetic characterisation of samples
