Title: In-vacuum multi-modal monochromator for synchrotron-based hard x-ray micro-imaging

Abstract

The original monochromator design we present consists in a high-vacuum vessel comprising three monochromators mounted side-by-side: a Lauë/Lauë, a Bragg/Bragg, and a double-multilayer monochromator. The selection of one monochromator type is done remotely by sliding laterally the crystal support in the monochromator vessel. In this way, exotic combinations such as Lauë/Bragg are also possible. Installation and commissioning of the new monochromator at ESRF beamline ID19 was carried out 2013-2014 (the multilayers not being installed yet). Beamline ID19 offers not only superb beam characteristics for phase-contrast imaging with a high level of sensitivity but also compared to other synchrotron X-ray imaging facilities a large beam of currently up to 7 cm × 1.3 cm. A wide energy range can be accessed in a fixed-exit mode (depending on the optics chosen the accessible energy range is between 10 keV and 200 keV). A beryllium exit window (10 cm × 10 cm active opening) completes the monochromator assembly.
