Beamline 6-ID-B,C

Beamline 6-ID-B,C is operated by the Magnetic Materials Group in the X-ray Science Division (XSD) of the Advanced Photon Source.

Research on this beamline centers on general x-ray scattering studies of materials. The beamline has 2 end-stations:

  • 6-ID-B: Psi -Diffractomter & In-Field Studies
  • 6-ID-C: UHV in-situ growth

Teasing Out the Nature of Structural Instabilities in Ceramic Compounds

March 12, 2013

Researchers have used beamlines 6-ID-B at the APS and XmAS at the ESRF to probe the structure of the rare-earth magnetic material europium titanate. In a magnetic field, the optical properties of this system change quite dramatically, presenting hope of a strong magneto-electric material for potential use in new memory, processing, and sensor devices.
