    We measured the spectral and spatial intensity distributions of synchrotron radiation (SR) in the soft x-ray region using an energy-dispersive method with a Si (Li) detector at the Photon Factory. By measuring the intensity of x rays scattered by helium gas, we could reduce the high SR intensity...
