      Beamline Description
      IXS utilizes a room-temperature 3-m long in-vacuum undulator source with a magnet period of 22 mm, installed at 10-ID, a high-[SMALL_BETA] long straight section. The device delivers a peak spectral flux of ~8x10[SUP]14[/SUP] photons/sec/0.1%bw at 9.13 keV at 500 mA operation current.

      X-ray Inelastic Scattering

      Research Types
      High-frequency dynamics in liquids, disordered and biomolecular materials; phonons in crystalline and polycrystalline materials; and vibrational dynamics of surfaces, interfaces and systems under extreme pressure.

      Optical System
      The beamline optical system includes a compound refractive lens to pre-focus and a double crystal high heat load monochromator to pre-monochromatize the beam before it is delivered to the high-resolution monochromator based on a four bounces scheme. The monochromatic beam is focused by a set of KB mirrors to the sample. The analyzer optical system, mounted on the spectrometer arm, includes a Montel multilayer collimating mirror collecting the photons scattered by the sample with a large angular acceptance and delivering them to the CDW analyzer based on asymmetric dispersive crystal optics. The analyzed x-ray photons are recorded by a 2D strip detector.

      Experimental Apparatus
      Novel IXS spectrometer with highly-dispersive back-reflection analyzer optics for sub-meV resolution. High-pressure low-temperature cryostat with online Ruby system for in-situ experiments. Humidity and temperature controlled sample chamber for biological materials. Imaging detector for on-line sample alignment and phase characterization by x-ray diffraction.

      Computer System Hardware & Software
      Beamline components are controlled by EPICS. The user interface is implemented using Python and Control System Studio (CSS) clients operating under Linux Debian workstations.
