Beamline 4-ID-D

Beamline 4-ID-D is operated by the Magnetic Materials Group in the X-ray Science Division (XSD) of the Advanced Photon Source.

It's primary research focus is on magnetic spectroscopy measurements at energies between 2.5 and 30 keV. 

  • X-ray magnetic circular dichroism.
  • Magnetic x-ray scattering.
  • X-ray magnetic reflectivity studies.

What's in the Cage Matters in Iron Antimonide Thermoelectric Materials

March 29, 2007

Iron antimonide materials have drawn intense interest because they offer a pollution-free source of electricity and a vibration free source of refrigeration. Research at beamline 4-ID-D examined how the magnetism of cage-filler lanthanides may influence the thermoelectric properties of these materials.
