Summary on Grant Application Form
We have been awarded beamtime for soft-xray magnetic scattering studies of multilayer systems at the National Synchrotron Light Source (NSLS) at Brookhaven in the USA. Unlike European Facilities such beamtime does not come with money to support travel to the facility. The experiments form part of our ongoing and highly successful joint programme on magnetic diffuse scattering between Leeds and ISIS. The grant request is for travel and subsistence funds only to allow a team of three people to travel to Brookhaven for six weeklong periods in order to operate the experiment 24 hours a day. Very few soft-xray beamlines are equipped with scattering chambers, as most are equipped to do only dichroism experiments in the absorption mode. The NSLS setup is well-developed, to our knowledge the only system with the temperature and magnetic field control required for our purposes.
