Abstract

Polarization tunability and analysis of X-rays is one of the most advancing features of third-generation synchrotron radiation sources. In order to apply such developments to the observation of magnetic effects, a diffractometer for X-ray magnetic absorption and scattering experiments was constructed on BL39XU at SPring-8. The efficiency of the apparatus is clearly demonstrated by several observations of the magnetic effects. In particular, a diamond phase plate plays an essential role in regulating both circular and linear polarization states.
