Paper Abstract

Exploiting polarisation effects significantly adds to the information obtainable from spectroscopy. Espe-cially circular polarisation is needed in a large class of experiments including but not limited to angular and spin resolved photo electron spectroscopy, investigation of circular dichroism in chiral molecules, and magneto-optical effects. Many of those experiments have been limited to photon energies below about 9 eV due to the unavailability of quarter wave plates /1/. At higher energies with suitable lasers the range has been extended up to 15 eV /2/. Using the natural polarisation properties of out of plane synchrotron radiation, the region up to 35 eV photon energy is accessable /3/.
