[Ifeffit] beamline for Al EXAFS

Hi Alex,

you could also try beamline I511-3 at MAX-lab, Sweden. I did some Al 
K-edge XAS in fluorescence yield there but TEY is also possible for 
conducting samples. The sample was simply glued to the sample holder 
with carbon tape. Since the Al K-edge energy is close to the upper limit 
of the beamline, good EXAFS measurements would probably take some time,

At such low energies as 1.5 keV for Al-K, the sample needs to be in vacuum, transmission will not work and Ge detectors probably the same. Does anybody have experience with Al-EXAFS, and can share a little about setup and what other complications to expect?
