Intended Use: The instrument(s) are the components of a 4th generation synchrotron accelerator, i.e., the Advanced Photon Source Upgrade (APSU) accelerator, one of the most technologically complex machines in the world. APSU is a non-profit research facility which provides ultrabright, high-energy x-ray beams to more than 5000 (and growing) scientists from across the United States. These scientists come from universities, medical schools, and other research institutions. Their research covers nearly every scientific discipline, from materials science to biology, chemistry, environmental, geological and planetary science and fundamental physics. APS provide x-ray beams of a broad parameters that allow them to collect data in unprecedented detail and in amazingly short time frames. According to the applicant, the research results achieved through APS will make real and positive impact on our technologies, health, economy and fundamental understanding of the materials that make up our world.

Instrument: Canted Undulator Front-End Fixed Masks and Photon Shutters. Manufacturer: Strumenti Scientific CINEL S.R.L., Italy. Intended Use: The instrument will be used to assemble the new canted undulator front ends for the Advanced Photon Source upgrade. The front end consists of a series of components that connect the storage ring to the user beamline in order to deliver a photon beam that will be used as a three-dimensional X-ray microscope for experimental purposes. The properties of the materials studied include but are not limited to grain structure, grain boundary and interstitial defects and morphology. These properties are not only studied at ambient environments but also under high pressure, temperature, stress and strain. The objective is to further the understanding of different materials and material properties.

Manufacturer: Danfysik, Denmark. Intended Use: The instrument is part of a complex machine to be used for basic research that provides a very stable and filtered direct current (DC) to power electromagnet to bend, focus and correct electrons particle (e-) in a multi bend achromat (MBA) storage ring (SR). The nominal current varies from 100 A to 300A and the required stability and ripple is better than 10 parts per million (<10 ppm). The equipment should comply with APS safety standards and mechanical dimensions to be installed in existing racks. According to the applicant, APS– U is approaching a new era in science and engineering, one that promises a revolutionary understanding of complex materials and chemical processes across the entire hierarchy of lengthscales and timescales. This understanding demands that we move beyond exploration of equilibrium phenomena and beyond models based on idealized materials and systems, to be able to create new states and achieve extraordinary new functions.
