A high-temperature furnace with an induction heater coil has been designed and constructed for in situ X-ray spectroscopic experiments under controlled atmospheric conditions and temperatures up to 3275 K. The multi-purpose chamber design allows working in backscattering and normal fluorescence mode for synchrotron X-ray absorption and emission(More)
Microsecond (μs) time-resolved extended X-ray absorption fine structure spectroscopy (EXAFS) has been developed using an energy-dispersive EXAFS (EDE) setup equipped with a silicon Quantum Detector ULTRA. The feasibility was investigated with a prototypical thermally driven redox reaction, the thermal decomposition of (NH₄)₂[PtCl₆]. EXAFS data were(More)
A sample chamber has been constructed for studying the growth of thin films by pulsed laser deposition in situ with surface X-ray diffraction. The achievable temperature ranges from room temperature to 1073 K in a controlled oxygen environment. The partial pressure of the oxygen background gas covers the range from 0.1 to 10(5) Pa. The first results,(More)
Results and performances of the QEXAFS double monochromator of the SAMBA beamline (Synchrotron SOLEIL) are presented. The device is capable of speeds of up to 40 Hz, while giving the user the possibility to choose the amplitude of the scan from 0.1° to 4° in a few seconds. The device is composed of two independent units and it is possible to perform scans(More)
