The tagged photon facility at the MAX IV Laboratory

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingPaper in conference proceedingpeer-review


The upgraded tagged photon facility at the MAX IV Laboratory is presented. The pulsed electron beam from a linac system is stretched in the MAX I ring and the electron beam hits a thin aluminium foil in which bremsstrahlung is produced. One of two available magnetic spectrometers is used to determine the energy of the post-bremsstrahlung electrons. The tagged photon ranges from 10 to 180 MeV with an energy resolution of about 300 keV. Rates as high as 4x10(6) photons s(-1) MeV-1 have been used. The experimental area and facilities are described as well as examples of ongoing experiments.
