X-ray Absorption Fine Structure Spectroscopy (XAFS) is a powerful technique to investigate local atomic geometry and the chemical state of the atoms in different types of materials specially if lacking of long-range order like nanomaterials, liquids, amorphous and highly disordered systems, polymers containing metallic atoms, etc. The DAFNE-Light DXR1 beam line is mainly dedicated to soft...

LISA (Linea Italiana per la Spettroscopia di Assorbimento di raggi X) is the new italian CRG beamline at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF) dedicated to X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy (XAS). The optical layout consists in one collimating mirror, a double crystal monochromator (DCM) and a double toroid focusing mirror. Si and Pt coatings ensure an efficient rejection of...

A proposal for building a Free Electron Laser, EuPRAXIA@SPARC_LAB, at the Laboratori Nazionali di Frascati, is at present under consideration. This FEL facility will exploit plasma acceleration to produce ultra-bright photon pulses with durations of few femtoseconds down to a wavelength between 2 and 4 nm, in the so called “water window”. The project is now focused on machine development, but...
21. Characterization of the Detector System for the XAFS beam-line of the synchrotron light source SESAME
Daniela Cirrincione (INFN-TS and UNIUD)
A Fluorescence Detector System for XAFS (X-ray Absorption Fine Structure) composed of 8 monolithic arrays of SDDs (Silicon Drift Detector), each having 8 cells of 9 mm2 area, is being realized within the INFN ReDSoX Collaboration. It will be used for X-ray absorption spectroscopy at the Jordan’s synchrotron light source SESAME that provides a photon beam with an energy range between 3 and 30...
