At the Advanced Light Source an undulator beamline, with an energy range from 6 to 30 eV, has been constructed for chemical dynamics experiments. The higher harmonics of the undulator are suppressed by a novel, windowless gas filter. In one branchline high-flux, 2% bandwidth radiation is directed toward an end station for photodissociation and crossed molecular-beam experiments. A photon flux of 1016 photon/s has been measured at this end station. In a second branchline a 6.65 m off-plane Eagle monochromator delivers narrow bandwidth radiation to an end station for photoionoization studies. At this second end station a peak flux of 3 × 1011 was observed for 25 000 resolving power. This monochromator has achieved a resolving power of 70 000 using a 4800 grooves/mm grating, one of the highest resolving powers obtained by a vacuum ultraviolet monochromator.
