Novel KK-filter commissioned during beamtime at APS/CNM sector 26 (August 24, 2012)

During the 2012R2 beamtime cycle of the Advanced Photon Source, testing and commissioning of new microscope components have been carried out in collaboration with colleagues from the X-ray Microscopy Group (XMG) and the Electronic and Magnetic Devices Group (EMMD) of the Center for Nanoscale Materials. In particular, a novel type of filter for the data acquisition system has been commissioned. The so-called KK-filter allows separating x-ray-induced currents from conventional tunnel currents.
