Liquid flexRIXS: A RIXS endstation for molecular systems at BESSY II

Annette Pietzsch

Abstract


The liquid flexRIXS endstation is dedicated to resonant inelastic x-ray scattering experiments on liquid samples and gasses in the soft x-ray range. The liquids are injected into the chamber via a liquid jet system whereas gasses and also small amounts of liquids can be investigated using a liquid/gas flow cell. The MCP-based RIXS spectrometer allows for a resolving power of better than 1000.
