We present a multi-purpose radiation furnace designed for x-ray experiments at synchrotrons. The furnace is optimized specifically for dark-field x-ray microscopy (DFXM) of crystalline materials at beamline ID06 of the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility. The furnace can reach temperatures above 1200 °C with a thermal stability better than 10 °C, with heating and cooling rates up to 30 K/s. The non-contact heating design enables samples to be heated either in air or in a controlled…
