A transmission EXAFS spectrometer has been installed before the powder diffractometer. Space is left free to accommodate sample environmental facilities such as gas reactors, etc.. For fluorescence measurements a multi-element solid state detector is foreseen, for transmission experiments photo-diodes, total electron yield, ionization chambers and gas filled proportional detectors, etc. Facilities for sample heating and cooling are, also, planed. A relatively simple set-up for performing X-ray standing waves experiments under normal incidence conditions are foreseen at the same place of the EXAFS station. It consists of a removable baby chamber that houses the samples in a UHV environment. The fluorescence detector is the same which is used for EXAFS experiments.
