Nuclear Resonance Scattering of Synchrotron Radiation at the 193Ir Resonance

by Olaf Leupold (DESY)



The aim of this presentation is to give an overview on the recently established nuclear resonance scattering of synchrotron radiation at the 193Ir resonance at an unusual high x-ray energy of 72.9 keV. First I shall briefly introduce the nuclear resonance scattering technique and report on the development and properties of optical elements and fast detectors (sub ns time resolution) for this energy. Two selected experiments will be presented: the investigation of magnetic properties of Sr2IrO4 and electronic and structural properties of iridium-chlorine bioinorganic materials.
