Abstract

The MARS (Multi-Analyses on Radioactive Samples) beamline, at Synchrotron Soleil (France) is fully dedicated to advanced structural and chemical characterizations of radioactive matter (solid or liquid), coupling analytical tools such as X-ray absorption spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction, X-ray fluorescence and associated micro-beam techniques. This beamline is now partially operational and has completed its first year of working with samples below exemption limits. This paper describes the beamline design and its technical specifications as well as the standard equipment of the experimental stations and the first obtained results.
