A double crystal, multilayer monochromator was designed and fabricated for a wiggler beamline at the Cornell High Energy Synchrotron Source (CHESS). The monochromator consists of an internally water-cooled first substrate and a fixed-radius sagittally focusing second substrate, each coated with a multilayer consisting of 100 bilayers of Tungsten/Carbon with a 27 angstrom d-spacing. The wide energy bandpass of this multilayer along with sagittal focusing provides the best available flux for time resolved experiments. A flux 100 times that of conventional silicon monochromators is possible and allows for a finer time resolution for the crystal growth studies on this beamline. For other experimental uses, the higher intensity allows for more rapid data collection.
