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

Stretching a boring material can lead to new functionality

September 30, 2010

The oxide compound europium titanate is pretty boring on its own. Research on beamlines 4-ID-C and 6-ID, however, show that this compound takes on remarkable new properties when its confined to nanometer films and properly stretched through growth on an appropriate substrate material.
