|WEPA10||Design and Ray-Tracing of the BEATS Beamline of SESAME||246|
Funding: EU H2020 framework programme for research and innovation. Grant agreement n°822535.
The BEAmline for Tomography at SESAME (BEATS) will operate an X-rayμtomography station providing service to scientists from archaeology, cultural heritage, medicine, biology, material science and engineering, geology and environmental sciences*. BEATS will have a length of 45 m with a 3-pole-wiggler source (3 T peak magnetic field at 11 mm gap). Filtered white and monochromatic beam (8 keV to 50 keV, dE/E: 2% to 3% using a double-multilayer-monochromator) modalities will be available. In this work we present the beamline optical design, verified with simulation tools included in OASYS**. The calculated flux through 1 mm2 at the sample position will be as high as 8.5×109 Ph/s/mm2 in 0.1% of the source bandwidth, for a maximum usable beam size of 70×15 mm2. Beam transverse coherence will be limited to below 1 µm by the horizontal size of the X-ray source (~2 mm FWHM). For phase contrast applications requiring enhanced coherence, front end slits can be closed to 0.5 mm horizontally, with a reduction of the available beam size and photon flux. The BEATS beamline will fulfill the needs of the tomography community of SESAME.
