SAMBA: The 4–40 keV X-ray absorption spectroscopy beamline at SOLEIL
Synchrotron SOLEIL, L’Orme des Merisiers, BP. 48, 91191 Gif-sur-Yvette, France
The SAMBA X-ray Absorption beamline has been operating for users since January 2008. The beamline covers a large energy range from 4 up to 40 keV in two working modes: a “high flux” mode using a sagittally focusing monochromator and a “time-resolved” mode using a dedicated Quick-EXAFS monochromator. Herein a technical description of the main beamline components is given and results concerning energy resolution, available flux and time resolved performances are presented.
