Paper Abstract

Increased thermal power of the x-ray beams produced at synchrotron radiation facilities such as the Advanced Photon Source at Argonne National Laboratory requires improvements in the thermal management of the components with which the beams interact. Crystals of silicon, germanium, diamond, beryllium, and silicon carbide are important substrate materials in this regard. Accurate physical, thermal, and mechanical properties of these materials, especially at cryogenic temperatures, are needed in the analysis and design of high heat load x-ray components. In this paper, we present a collection of the relevant data, and include curve fits, when possible, for ease of use in the analysis.
