The plane grating monochromator beamline U49-2 PGM-1 at BESSY II

Torsten Kachel


U49/2 PGM1 is one of HZB open-port VUV beamlines. Therefore and due to the fact that it delivers highest flux with very acceptable energy resolution it is the most heavily booked BESSY II beamline. Earlier work has largely focused on surface science and catalysis. After shut down of the former U41 PGM an increasing number of experiments on liquids and solutions are carried out.
