Abstract: Background

A double multilayer monochromator (DMM) is required in the time-resolved ultra small angle X-ray scattering (USAXS) beamline during Shanghai Synchrotron Radiation Facility (SSRF) phase II construction.


This study aims at the structure design of DMM for the USAXS beamline of SSRF to satisfy the requirements.


Based on condition of indirectly cooled by liquid nitrogen, thermal slope error of the multilayer was analyzed and detailed mechanical design of the DMM was introduced. Based on the analysis of the errors caused by the multilayer crystal optics attitude adjustment and the planar four-bar motion mechanism, a Sinbar mechanism based on Pivot and bearing rotating was designed for the DMM. [Results &


Basical analysis and calculation results show the design scheme can meet the requirements of monochromator stability and ultra-high angle resolution. At present, the monochromator is manufacturing and its performance will be tested and reported in the future.

Key words: Synchrotron radiation, Monochromator, Multilayer, Liquid nitrogen cooling, Small angle X-ray scattering
