This study is trying to design the thermal load effect on the soft x-ray beamline first mirror from ID (Insertion Device).
The beamline first mirror is HFM (Horizontal Focus Mirror), the HFM need to absorb the thermal energy, soft X-ray the footprint size om HFM is 120*5.2 mm, the thermal power is about 270 W.
The HFM cooling by the water pipe mounted on the thermal fin, mirror and thermal fin contact by Gallium–Indium alloy. The HFM thermal fin's Gallium–Indium alloy seal by nickel tube avoids leaking in the vacuum chamber.
The HFM thermal fin design can cooling mirror backside and part of frontside, and the HFM thermal bump need small than 10u rad.
The project of transmission x-ray microscope (TXM) with tender x-ray is undergoing as an extension project of the soft x-ray tomography (SXT) endstation at Taiwan Photon Source (TPS). This TXM is aimed for energy from 1.5 keV to 2.4 keV and with phase contrast with the x-ray energy of 2.4 keV. As the extension of current SXT project, the beamline will be equipped with a variable line spacing (VLS) grating with the multi-layer coating which will be optimized for 2.4 keV.
This TXM will be zoneplate based with a phase ring and capillary condenser. In order to match the field of view and numerical aperture (NA) of zoneplate with the emittance of the source in vertical direction, some compromise should be made. To match the low emittance of vertical direction, the NA of zoneplate should be lower and vertical of the secondary source should be larger. This will lower spatial resolution and energy resolution. The targeting resolution of this TXM for phase contrast will be 50nm and FOV is 20 μm. For the detector, which is currently design with a scintillator with a CCD detector. For the future, the direct detector for small pixel and high signal to noise ratio can be obtained. The other components of TXM, such as stages, cryo system, which can be shared with current SXT system which works under the energy of the water window region.
This endstation for tender X-ray will be commission in 2020. The detailed design and current progress will be discussed in this presentation.
