Paper Abstract

A new helical undulator has been built with an hybrid electromagnet/permanent magnet technology and was recently coupled to the ESRF ID12A beamline which is dedicated to polarization dependent X-ray absorption spectroscopy. This insertion device was optimized to produce high fluxes of circularly polarized X-ray photons in the energy range 1.5 - 8 keV. It consists of 19 magnetic periods of length 80 mm with a peak magnetic field of about 0.2 T. With this new undulator, it is possible to flip very rapidly the helicity of the emitted radiation by reversing the current in the coil generating the vertical magnetic field. Magnetic measurements concerning this new insertion device are also reported. Its performances are illustrated by X-ray Natural Circular Dichroism spectra recorded at the Te L-edges with a (alpha) - TeO2 single crystal.
