Paper Abstract

Assuring the survivability and adequate performance of monochromator crystals under the high heat-load conditions present at modern synchrotron light sources, without unduly compromising throughput, is an ongoing challenge in x-ray optics design. Various partial solutions were generated over the last few years but there is still a significant room for improvement. In this paper a new crystal design, allowing for a significant increase of throughput without sacrificing performance, is presented. Utilizing novel geometry the crystal optimizes the utilization of the tried and proven schemes of cryogenic cooling and thin-crystal design, to provide superb heat-load handling capability.
