Experimental hutch (Bldg. 47c) of P66 located on top of the PETRA III ring tunnel, adjacent to the PETRA III experimental hall 'Max von Laue' on the left side (Picture from 2018).

The commissioning and first users run are planned on the autumn 2021.

Experiment for VUV luminescence and reflection spectroscopy

I

The P66 station 'SUPERLUMI' will be operated in the UV- VUV spectral region with pulsed synchrotron excitation in nanosecond range.

The central features of this beamline are its very large horizontal acceptance. The entrance optics consists of two mirrors for separate vertical and horizontal focusing.
The first, cylindrical mirror is located at a distance of 10.8 m from the source and accepts 12 mrad of the horizontal divergence. This gives a 3 mm wide image at the entrance slit of the monochromator.
The second (M2), plane elliptic mirror focuses the 2.2 mrad vertical divergence to 0.1 mm at the entrance slit of the monochromator. Both mirrors can be aligned by remote control.

Primary 2 m normal incidence monochromator in 15° Mc Pherson mounting covers the working UV and VUV spectral range from 3.7 eV to 40 eV. The monochromator is equipped with two holographic concave gratings (1200 groves/mm), which can be interchanged in situ. These gratings are optimized for different wavelength ranges by Pt and Al+MgF2 coatings.
The slits of the primary monochromator are manual and have widths from 10 µm to 2000 µm wich corresponds to the resolution interval range between 0.02 nm and 0.3 nm.

Applications

  • VUV luminescence spectroscopy
  • Photon-stimulated desorption
  • Time-resolved spectroscopy

P66 beamline will be mostly dedicated to time- resolved luminescence spectroscopy experiments.

The experiment setup is located in the building 47K on top of the PETRA III tunnel between of the FLASH experimental hall 'Kai Siegbahn' and PETRA III experimental hall 'Max von Laue'.
