Paper Abstract

This paper reports on the first characterization of the polarization generated by the crossed overlapped electromagnetic undulator, OPHELIE, of the new high flux/high resolution VUV beamline, SU5, in the Super-ACO storage ring at LURE. The beamline configuration for these tests was reduced after the undulator to a single mirror M1, a TGM monochromator and a multiple-reflection polarimeter. The versatility of polarizations generated by the undulator has been demonstrated around 7 eV by the measurements after the monochromator of highly polarized light either linearly (Ptot greater than 95%) or circularly (Ptot up to 80%). The standard mode of operation which produces a strong vertical linear polarization as well as the other exotic modes like the horizontal and the tilted linear polarizations, the left- and right-handed polarization and the switching between these modes, have been validated for a very large range of photon energies across the undulator spectrum.
