      Beamline Description
      BMM uses a three-pole wiggler source along with a paraboloid collimating mirror, a Si (311) monochromator, and a toroidal focusing mirror to provide light to a highly usable end-station. The end-station is equipped to provide high-quality, high-throughput XAS coordinated with an eight-circle goniometer for XRD and constant-q spectroscopy measurements such as refflexafs or DAFS.
