Polref science

Research you can do with the instrument

polREF will have flexible, three-directional polarisation control, allowing access to all elements of the polarisation matrix over a wavelength range from 1–15 Å. Accurate three-dimensional control of applied magnetic fields at the sample position will be achieved with a 0.5 Tesla magnet, and in-situ magneto-optic Kerr microscopy will give complementary information on the magnetic configuration. A 10 Tesla superconducting magnet will be provided for measurements of rare earth magnetism and superconductivity. polREF will have a 23 m primary flight path and view the grooved solid methane moderator.
