Title: Energy resolution estimation of hemispherical deflector analyzers using electron ray-tracing simulation

Abstract

A hemispherical deflector analyzer usually consists of an electrostatic input lens, two concentric hemispherical deflector plates and a channel electron multiplier. Input lens system is used to focus electron beam at the entrance of the hemispherical deflector which disperses the beam according to their energy, and a channel electron multiplier is used to detect electrons. In the present work, we investigated the energy resolution of hemispherical electron energy analyzers as a function electron energy, entrance angle of the beam, and analyzer radius both using ray-tracing and analytical method. Distributions of electrons at the exit of the analyzer were calculated for the total maximum angular divergences of 10 - 50. We expect this general approach to be of particular interest to investigators using modern HDAs.

  • A specially designed hemispherical deflector analyzer (HDA) with 5-element input lens having a movable entry position R{sub 0} suitable for electron energy analysis in atomic collisions was constructed and tested. The energy resolution of the HDA was experimentally determined for three different entry positions R{sub 0}= 84, 100, 112 mm as a function of the nominal entry potential V(R{sub 0}) under pre-retardation conditions. The resolution for the (conventional) entry at the mean radius R{sub 0}= 100 mm was found to be a factor of 1.6-2 times worse than the resolution for the two (paracentric) positions R{sub 0}= 84 and 112more » mm at particular values of V(R{sub 0}). These results provide the first experimental verification and a proof of principle of the utility of such a paracentric HDA, while demonstrating its advantages over the conventional HDA: greater dispersion with reduced angular aberrations resulting in better energy resolution without the use of any additional fringing field correction electrodes. Supporting simulations of the entire lens plus HDA spectrometer are also provided and mostly found to be within 20%-30% of experimental values. The paracentric HDA is expected to provide a lower cost and/or more compact alternative to the conventional HDA particularly useful in modern applications utilizing a position sensitive detector.« less
  • An instrument has been developed to avoid the rotation of large electron sources and detectors in quantum single particle scattering experiments. The rotation of an electron beam has been achieved by combining three small cylindrical electrostatic electron energy analyzers in series such that the first analyzer is fixed and the other two rotate together around the exit axis of the first; it is a development from an S-shaped deflector used by Hegemann et al. [J. Phys. B 26, 4607 (1993)]. Novel design and construction, using copper, aluminum, and stainless steel parts mounted on polyvinyl printed circuit board, enabled an efficient,more » small-sized high vacuum compatible instrument. The characteristics and versatility of the instrument have been shown by measurements of angular and spin asymmetries of electron scattering phenomena.« less
  • We propose a novel method to characterize the temporal duration and shape of femtosecond x-ray pulses in a free-electron laser (FEL) by measuring the time-resolved electron-beam energy loss and energy spread induced by the FEL process, with a transverse radio-frequency deflector located after the undulator. Its merits are simplicity, high resolution, wide diagnostic range, and non-invasive to user operation. When the system is applied to the Linac Coherent Light Source, the first hard x-ray free-electron laser in the world, it can provide single-shot measurements on the electron beam and x-ray pulses with a resolution on the order of 1-2 femtosecondsmore » rms.« less
  • In this work new improvements related to the fabrication of spherical bent analyzers for 1 meV energy-resolution inelastic X-ray scattering spectroscopy are presented. The new method includes the use of a two-dimensional bender to achieve the required radius of curvature for X-ray analyzers. The advantage of this method is the ability to monitor the focus during bending, which leads to higher-efficiency analyzers.
