Paper Abstract

The focusing of highly brilliant synchrotron insertion device beams necessitates very precise and stable beamline optics in order to conserve the high brilliance of the source. Moreover, the heat load on mirrors and monochromators may strongly degrade the brilliance in the focus. It is shown here that insertion devices on the borderline between undulators and wigglers 2.5 <EQ K <EQ 5.0 give the highest possible brilliance of the focus over the energy range 0 <EQ (epsilon) (keV) <EQ 40 keV and at a modest overall heat load. Installed on a low-(beta) site the high intrinsic collimation produces a small effective source size which can be imaged using spherical optics with nearly vanishing aberrations.
