We upgraded the hard X-ray spectroscopy beamline BL39XU at SPring-8 by installing Kirkpatrick-Baez mirrors to equip it with submicron-focusing capability. At the new experimental end-station located 74 m from the undulator source, an X-ray nanoprobe with a size of 120 x 100 nm2 has become available at 5-16 keV. This upgrade is fully compatible with the X-ray polarization tunability and helicity-switching between right- and left-circular polarizations; these are unique features of the beamline, which is equipped with a diamond X-ray phase retarder. A spatial resolution of ≈100 nm for X-ray absorption fine structure and X-ray magnetic circular dichroism (XMCD) spectroscopy has been achieved. We show a magnetization reversal process of an individual magnetic dot in bit-patterned perpendicular recording media using element-specific XMCD magnetization measurements to demonstrate the performance of the new station.
