TARUMÃ is the sub-microprobe station of CAR-NAÚBA (Coherent X-Ray Nanoprobe Beamline) at Sirius at the Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory (LNLS). Covering the tender-to-hard energy range from 2.05 to 15 keV with achromatic fixed-shape optics, the fully coherent submicron focused beam can be used for multiple simultaneous advancedμand nanoscale X-ray techniques that include ptychography coherent diffraction imaging (ptycho-CDI), absorption spectroscopy (XAS), diffraction (XRD), fluorescence (XRF) and luminescence (XEOL). Among the broad range of materials of interest, studies of light elements present in soft tissues and other biological systems put TARUMÃ in a unique position in the Life and Environmental Sciences program at LNLS. Yet, to mitigate the detrimental effect of the high photon flux of the focused beam due to radiation damage, cryocooling may be required. Here we present the design and first results of a novel open-atmosphere cryogenic system for online sample conditioning down to 110 K. The high-stiffness and thermally-stable sample holder follows the predictive design approach based on precision engineering principles to preserve the nanometer-level positioning requirements, whereas a commercial nitrogen blower is used with a cold gas flow exhaustion system that has been developed in order to avoid unwanted cooling of surrounding parts and water condensation or icing.
