APS Octupole

ADC USA, Inc. has developed a new instrument for Soft X-ray Scattering. This device creates a highly adaptable end station for crystallography experimentation. Eight magnets, equidistantly spaced about the surface of a sphere, create an omnidirectional field vector with a magnitude of 1 [T] and uniformity over the sample space of +/- 1%. The magnets protrude into an ultra high vacuum chamber with a base pressure of 5E-10 [mbar] that houses both the sample and detector apparatus. The entire system is then capable of rotation about the beam axis.


This custom Octupole was designed and built for the Advanced Photon Source.
