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

Recent Research Highlights

New Classes of Magnetoelectric Materials Can Advance Computing

February 11, 2013

A research team has recently used beamlines 6-ID-B at the APS and XmAS at the ESRF to probe the magnetic order of EuTiO3 under applied magnetic and electric fields. Such information can be used to help understand how to control magnetic properties with an electic signal and vice versa.
