HOMEWhat is SACLASACLA Technology

SACLA Technology
SACLA brings together a number of world-class technologies. Here are few of them.

Electron gun that produces high beam Accelerate electrons efficiently with a C-band Accelerator
Owning to the development of a graphite heater,
the cathode can operate stably at a temperature of 1450 C.
  A C-band accelerator (5.7 GHz), which can accelerate electrons with twice the gradient of earlier machines, has made it possible to design a very compact accelerator.
By processing high purity oxygen-free copper to a precision of 1 micron, were able to build an accelerator tube with an acceleration gradient of 350kV per centimeter.

In-vacuum undulators-generates X-ray laser light Beamline experimental stations for advanced experiments
Since the rows of magnets are set within the vacuum duct, they can be placed within 1.5 mm of the beam, allowing the magnets to have a strong influence on the beam.    A high-quality x-ray mirror with a surface precision of 1 nanometer, and a control device, developed jointly with Osaka University, to control the orientation of the mirror.

Accurate & stable control devices behind SACLA SACLA Detectors
Control technology that functions in a high-voltage, high-noise environment.
A high-stability power supply that controls electromagnets at a precision of 20 ppm.
A stepping motor system equipped with a position detection device that functions in a high-radiation environment.
   The “eyes” that can accurately visualize anything from a single x-ray photon to masses of photons are composed of a sensor (left) and a high-speed high-precision electronic circuit(right).

High-stability trestle to support the accelerator Accurate & stable control devices behind SACLA
A device was developed to polish the concrete floor to a precision of 50 microns, and the vibration resistance of the trestle was greatly improved by increasing the contact between it and the ground.    An electron beam position monitor that can measure the position of the beam to within 1 micron
