High-resolution Russian–German beamline at BESSY


The superior performance of the high-resolution Russian–German bending-magnet beamline at BESSY is demonstrated by measuring photon flux and photoionization spectra in the spectral region of the 2,-13 resonance of doubly-excited He as well as at the 1s absorption thresholds of gas-phase N2, O2, and Ne. It is shown that even after 6 years of successful operation, the beamline remains to provide a solid basis for a further development of the Russian–German scientific cooperation in the field of applications of synchrotron radiation.
