Paper Abstract

We report here on the design of the first crystal in an x-ray monochromator for ESRF beamlines. This crystal is a thin silicon foil bonded to a cooled beryllium support. A system of piezoelectric actuators is used to correct for the thermal deformations produced by synchrotron X-ray beams. The first step of this study is a thermomechanical simulation. It has showed that the slope errors of the crystal surface along the X-ray direction are less than 5 (mu) rad. The second step is a feasibility study of the silicon/beryllium bonding. After tests, we have chosen molecular adhesion method between the silicon crystal foil and the beryllium support.
