Abstract: The Nanoscience beamline (I06) is one of seven Diamond Phase?I beamlines which has been operational since January 2007 delivering polarised soft x?rays, for a PhotoEmission Electron Microscope (PEEM) and branchline, in the energy range 80–2100 eV. The beamline is based on a collimated plane grating monochromator with sagittal focusing elements, utilising two APPLE II helical undulator sources, and has been designed for high flux density at the PEEM sample position. A ?5 ?m (?) diameter beam is focussed onto the sample in the PEEM allowing a range of experiments using x?ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS), x?ray magnetic circular dichroism (XMCD) and x?ray magnetic linear dichroism (XMLD) as contrast mechanisms. The beamline is also equipped with a branchline housing a 6T superconducting magnet for XMCD and XMLD experiments. The magnet is designed to move on and off the branchline which allows a diverse range of experiments.
