Abstract
The MAX IV synchrotron light source in Lund, Sweden is being commissioned for full operation in late 2017. The HIPPIE beamline will provide research groups with a state of the art machine for ambient pressure photoelectron spectroscopy. The beamline con- tains a range of diagnostic instruments that measure the status of the beam within the beamline. These tools are used in combination with methodical adjustments so that the beamline can be calibrated, ensuring that the highest performance of the machine is har- nessed.
To commission the beamline different parts of the beamline were aligned relative to each other, the beamline consists primarily of four mirrors which focus and defocus the beam. At different stages of commissioning... (More)

To commission the beamline different parts of the beamline were aligned relative to each other, the beamline consists primarily of four mirrors which focus and defocus the beam. At different stages of commissioning different tools need to be used to garner useful in- formation to continue the optimisation procedure.
In this thesis, the commissioning process will be presented and the methodical process of operating the diagnostic tools will be described in detail. Additionally, the undulator spectrum will be analysed to assess HIPPIEs performance compared to simulations of its design parameters. X-ray photoelectron (XP) spectra will be measured and analysed to further asses the beamlines status. (Less)
Popular Abstract
X-rays are a powerful tool to aid scientific research. Circular particle accelerators can produce brilliant X-rays that are especially useful for scientific research in areas such as, preservation of cultural heritage and understanding strange phenomena of materials. These strange materials and their phenomena have the potential to play a big part in future human advancements.
