Paper Abstract

Certain types of insertion devices for angiography can produce extraordinarily large heat fluxes on critical components of a synchrotron beam line and its optics. The shutters, beam splitters, filters, and the first-stage monochromators all are subjected to large fluxes of radiation. The cooling requirements of such beam line components are approached in a comprehensive manner to identify the governing parameters from first principles. Analytical techniques have been used to study various methods of handling the heat loads using both liquid metal and water coolants for various potential heated geometries. It is found that when properly designed, liquid metal cooling can be much more efficient. In addition, composites and low Z surfaces have been considered. Also investigated are the heat transfer problems of the optical stages and rotating monochromators.
