Surface and interface analysis at 3rd generation light sources

View publication


A third generation of synchrotron radiation facilities is coming on line worldwide, whose brilliance exceeds previous ultraviolet and x-ray light sources by four orders of magnitude. The capabilities at second and third generation light sources are discussed, using examples in surface and interface chemistry and magnetic nanostructures. The authors' experience at the IBM-Tennessee-Tulane-LLNL-LBL undulator beam line will serve as a hands-on guide for work at one of the new facilities. © 1995.
