Paper Abstract

A computer tool for the evaluation of the absorbed and re-scattered power from optical elements in a synchrotron beamline has been written using the Monte Carlo package PENELOPE. A precise estimation of this power is needed to assist in the design of the shielding inside the optical chambers that receive high power, like for the Upgrade Programme at the ESRF. The results for scattered power calculation are presented for three cases i) a Glidcop mirror for the SESAME Synchrotron, ii) a silicon crystal in use at the ESRF beamline ID06, and iii) a Laue crystal for the new monochromator of the ESRF ID17 beamline.
