Paper Abstract

The Advanced Photon Source (APS) has embarked on a systematic program in high heat load x-ray monochromator optics to mitigate the thermal effects due to the powerful x-ray beams at third-generation synchrotron sources. This program includes both experimental and computational studies. The approaches being studied include the use of new coolants (cryogens and liquid gallium), new crystal geometries (inclined and variable asymmetric), and new materials (diamond). The paper summarizes the high heat load monochromator program at the APS.
