The BL08U1A beamline is established as a sophisticated platform at Shanghai Synchrotron Radiation Facility (SSRF), taking advantage of its high spatial resolution (< 30 nm) and high energy resolving power (>10 000), for studying properties of solid, liquid, gas, film and other forms of materials at sub-micron scale. In this paper, we present a review on newly implemented techniques, such as total electron yield (TEY), dual energy contrast imaging, nano-CT, soft X-ray excited optical luminance (SXEOL), and coherent diffraction imaging (CDI) under development. Several research cases in nanomaterials, environmental science and biology are presented to demonstrate capabilities of the beamline.

Key words: Scanning transmission soft X-ray microscopy, Total electron yield, Coherent diffraction imaging, Soft X-ray excited optical luminance
