The KMC-3 XPP beamline at BESSY II

Ivo Zizak, Peter Gaal


The KMC-3 beamline is installed at teh bending magnet of the BESSY II synchrotron light source. It provides focused beam of monochromatic X-ray light at energies between 2.2 and 14 keV. It is dedicated to two experiments: X-ray Pump Probe (XPP) and CryoEXAFS.
