The crystal monochromator beamline KMC-1 at BESSY II

Franz Schäfers


The KMC-1 is a soft x-ray double crystal monochromator beamline for the energy range between 2 and 12 keV. The bending magnet beamline as well as the experiment are under UHV-condition. It incorporates high indexed Si-crystals for high resolution and it is primarily used for HAXPES experiments employing the HIKE (High Kinetic Energy Photoelectron Spectroscopy) chamber.
