Title: Development of Superconducting Insertion Device Magnets at NSRRC

Abstract

A superconducting wavelength shifter (SWLS) with a magnetic field of 6.5 T in cryogen-free operation provides X-rays for high-resolution X-ray microscopy, EXAFS, and medical imaging beamlines. A 32-pole superconducting wiggler (SW) with a period of 6.1 cm and a magnetic field of 3.2 T in a liquid helium bath provides for three dedicated protein crystallography beamlines. Additionally, three 16-pole in-achromatic superconducting wigglers (IASW) with a period of 6.1 cm and a field strength of 3.1 T were constructed in-house and installed between the first and second bending magnets of a TBA arc section. Development of a prototype superconducting undulator (SU15) with a period of 15 mm and a field strength of 1.4 T is currently underway at National Synchrotron Radiation Research Center (MSRRC)

  • Multiple trim magnets (MTMs), also known as magic fingers,'' are an arrangement of magnets for reducing integrated magnetic-field errors in insertion devices. The idea is to use transverse arrays of permanent magnets, hence the name multiple trim magnets,'' above and below the midplane, to correct both normal and skew longitudinal magnetic-field integral errors in a device. MTMs are typically installed at the ends of an ID. Adjustments are made by changing either the size, position, or orientation of each trim magnet. Application of the MTMs to the ALS undulators reduced both the normal and skew longitudinal field integral errors, overmore » the entire 20 mm[times]60 mm good field region,'' of the beam aperture by as much as an order of magnitude. The requirements included corrections of field and gradients outside the multipole convergence radius. Additionally, these trim magnet arrays provided correction of the linear component of the integrated field gradients for particles with trajectories not parallel to the nominal beam axis. The MTM concept, design, construction, tests that demonstrated feasibility, and magnetic-field integral reduction of ALS undulators are presented.« less

  • An active grating based on a novel optical concept with bendable polynomial surface profile to reduce the coma and defocus aberrations had been designed and proved by the prototype testing. Due to the low glass transition temperature of the glue and the difference of thermal expansion coefficient between the 17-4 steel bender and silicon, the prototype distorted from flat polished condition when thermally de-blocked the polishing pitch. To improve the thermal deformation of the active grating in the polishing process, a new invar bender and high curing temperature glue were adapted to glue a silicon substrate on the bender. Aftermore » some tests and manufacturer polishing, it showed acceptable conditions. In this paper we will present the design and preliminary tests of the invar active grating. Meanwhile, the design and analysis of a new 17-4 PH steel bender to be electro-less nickel plating and mechanical ruling for a new beamline will also be discussed.« less
  • An X-ray pinhole monitor is designed to measure the size, emittance and energy spread of the electron beam at NSRRC. The profile of the electron beam in a synchrotron radiation source is commonly assessed with a pinhole monitor of a cheap and simple design. To increase the resolution of the measurement, one method is to use the X-ray regime. The beam passes through a pinhole and the low-energy photons are eliminated with a filter. The beam profile is imaged with a fluorescent screen. The pinhole dimension is optimized on minimizing the diffraction blurring and maximizing the geometric resolution. The X-raymore » pinhole monitor is simulated with a SRW program. We designed an X-ray pinhole monitor to have three sets of pinhole array, six sets of filters and three sets to screens to increase the information acquired about the characteristics of the X-ray pinhole monitor. The simulation and design are presented here.« less
  • Superconducting insertion devices are installed at Taiwan Light Source to meet the rapidly growing demand of X-ray users. A control system supports the operation of all these superconducting insertion devices. Control system coordinates the operation of the main power supply and the trimming power supply to charge/discharge the magnet and provide essential interlock protection for the coils and vacuum ducts. Quench protection and various cryogenic interlocks are designed to prevent damage to the magnet. A friendly user interface supports routine operation. Various applications are also developed to aid the operation of these insertion devices. Design consideration and details of themore » implementation will be summarized in this report.« less
