Beamline Front Ends for CHESS-U

ADC is manufacturing three identical x-ray front ends for the CHESS-U upgrade.To reduce installation time at CHESS, all Front End components are assembled onto a single support beam and precisely aligned. The fully assembled FE’s are then tested, pumped down, and baked-out prior delivery to CHESS. Off-site alignment at ADC allows for a final installation which only requires positioning of the support beam, and not each individual component. Off-site pumping down and baking will also aid in reducing beamline downtime.
