The Balder beamline is dedicated to X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS) and X-ray emission spectroscopy (XES) in medium and hard X-ray energy range, 2.4-40 keV. The high brilliance from the 3 GeV storage ring combined with the beamline design will allow for time resolved measurements, down to sub-second time resolution, to be performed. The design of the experimental station has focused on the development of experimental set-ups, with detection systems and sample environments, that allows for in-situ and in-operando measurements. Strong emphasis is also put on development of experimental set-ups and methodologies for handling challenging samples, highly diluted samples and samples that are sensitive to radiation damage.
