Paper Abstract

The recent success of the X-ray Free Electron Lasers has generated great interests from the user communities of a wide range of scientific disciplines including physics, chemistry, structural biology and material science, creating tremendous demand on FEL beamtime access. Due to the serial nature of FEL operation, various beam-sharing techniques have been investigated in order to potentially increase the FEL beamtime capacity. Here we report the recent development in using thin diamond single crystals for spectrally splitting the FEL beam at the Linac Coherent Light Source, thus potentially allowing the simultaneous operation of multiple instruments. Experimental findings in crystal mounting and its thermal performance, position and pointing stabilities of the reflected beam, and impact of the crystal on the FEL transmitted beam profile are presented.
