Large enhancements of the magnetic cross-section of photons occur when the energy is tuned near to an absorption edge. Examples of this effect in the actinides at the M(IV) edge are presented. The excellent resolution available with X-ray synchrotron beams has allowed new features in both the magnetic structure and the critical regime to be determined. The technique is also sensitive to the near-surface region. Some of the possibilities with the new 3rd-generation synchrotrons are discussed.
