25 September 1995 Elliptical wiggler beam line with minimum focal spot size at the ALS

A beamline for circularly polarized radiation produced by an elliptical wiggler has been designed at the ALS. It covers a broad energy range from 50 eV to 2000 eV. The rigorous theory of grating diffraction efficiency has been used to maximize throughput. This is a challenging optical problem due to the nature of the elliptical wiggler insertion device. The wiggler has a large source size in the vertical and horizontal directions, and the monochromator requires high resolution (small slits), a wide tuning range, and cooling for high heat loads. These problems have been solved by using a variable included angle monochromator with high demagnification onto the entrance slit, aberration correction of the grating for the large vertical aperture, and cooled optics.
