Title: Installation of a second superconducting wiggler at SAGA-LS

Abstract

The SAGA Light Source is a synchrotron radiation facility consisting of a 255 MeV injector linac and a 1.4 GeV storage ring with a circumference of 75.6 m. A superconducting wiggler (SCW) with a peak magnetic field of 4 T has been routinely operating for generating hard X-rays since its installation in 2010. In light of this success, it was decided to install a second SCW as a part of the beamline construction by Sumitomo Electric Industries. To achieve this, machine modifications including installation of a new magnet power supply, improvement of the magnet control system, and replacement of the vacuum chambers in the storage ring were carried out. Along with beamline construction, installation and commissioning of the second SCW are scheduled to take place in 2015.

  • A new hard X-ray beamline has been designed at Saga Light Source. The beamline, named BL7, uses a newly developed 4-Tesla superconducting wiggler as a light source in order to cover a wide energy range to 30 keV. This beamline has a simple optics: a double-crystal monochromator and a Rh-coated bent-cylindrical mirror and can supply a focused beam with a photon flux about 1x10{sup 10} photons/s and a sub-millimeter size. Several experiments will be performed in the experimental station: e.g. protein crystallography; X-ray micro computed tomography; X-ray absorption fine structure measurement.
  • Since there are no iron cores in the rotor and stator windings of superconducting synchronous motors, some reactances are intrinsically smaller than the ones of conventional motors. So the low synchronous reactance would be expected to improve the torque-ampere ratio stability and the overload capacity. Two types of 30-kVA synchronous motors, such as rotating armature and rotating field have been constructed. The rotating armature type motor had been fabricated and tested. The results show the difficulty of holding a stator cryostat in a low-heat leak condition. The low synchronous impedance requires some control of the armature current and/or the motormore » field current. The rotating field type motor encountered a balancing problem due to the triple-pipe configuration of the helium supplier in the torque tube.« less
  • The increasing demand for high fluxes of x-rays to perform crystallography and material physics at MAX-lab is met with the MAX wiggler. The MAX-Wiggler is a cold bore superconducting wiggler with 47 3.5 T poles and a period length of 61 mm and it has been constructed in-house at MAX-lab. The MAX-Wiggler has now been installed and commissioned on the 1.5 GeV MAX-II storage ring at MAX-lab. This paper describes the design and performance of the MAX-Wiggler and also the studies of the effects of the MAX-Wiggler on the stored electron beam. The MAX-Wiggler cryostat is a pool type cryostatmore » with a bath of liquid He where the boiled of He gas is used for cooling different parts of the cryostat. The consumption of liquid He is about 2.5 litres per hour at nominal working conditions with 200 mA of stored current in the MAX II storage ring. The effects of the wiggler on the stored electron beam, of which the vertical focusing effect is the most dominating, have been neutralized by modifying the magnetic optics of the storage ring and the MAX-Wiggler is now in routine operation at MAX-Lab.« less
  • A three pole superconducting wiggler magnet has been constructed to be used as a light source in a 1.5 GeV electron storage ring at the University of Lund, Sweden. The main design principles have been reported elsewhere. With a central flux density B{sub 0} of 6 T, the high field wiggler will produce X-rays with a critical wavelength of 1.38 A. During construction three different kind of racetrack type windings were made. The comparison concerning the magnet stability between the different coil concepts has been evaluated with different supporting structures and magnet ramping rates. The main performance of the magnetmore » system and the influence of training are discussed. Quench analysis and the cryogenic facility are also included in the discussion.« less
  • A new superconducting vertical wiggler was installed in the 2.5 GeV KEK-PF ring in Sept. 1989 and has been operated as a generator of a synchrotron radiation since Oct. 1989. Characteristics of the wiggler are reported here. The wiggler has five magnet poles with a maximum field strength of 5 T along the beam orbit. The wiggler is operated in a permanent current mode and consumes liquid helium of 0.12{plus minus}0.02 l/h. An orbit distortion due to the decrease of the exciting current in the permanent current mode which comes from resistance of junctions between coils and PCSs is correctedmore » by two normal steering magnets. The wiggler is operated continuously without supplying any current for a few weeks.« less
