Compendium of XAFS beamlines in the Americas

This compendium of XAFS beamlines is mantained by the Commission on XAFS of the IUCr as a service to the scientific community. We list beamlines on which measurements of XAFS, XMCD and related techniques, both in the soft and in the hard x-ray regions, are possible; the widest possible range of applications is considered. Both presently operating beamlines and those which are in the construction, commissioning or design phase are included.

See our list of acronyms.

The data is listed to the best of our knowledge; most of it has been obtained from facility websites and in some
cases it has been checked by members of the IUCr Commission on XAFS, staff scientists or expert users.
We wish to thank Santiago J. A. Figueroa (LNLS), E. Farquhar (NSLS) and S. Heald (APS) for helpful comments.

We welcome corrections and updates, which should be sent to Giuliana Aquilanti and Masao Tabuchi
