Previous: Particle counters
A SR spectrometer is usually equipped with three pairs of
Helmholtz coils: one longitudinal (beamline),
one vertical and one horizontal pair. These three magnets
makes it possible to null the magnetic field at the sample position
for zero-field (ZF) SR measurements.
The longitudinal magnet is also used to apply higher external
magnetic field during the measurements.
