NOVOSIBIRSK, May 4. /TASS/. Specialists from Novosibirsk Institute of Nuclear Physics have on the request from CERN (European Organization for Nuclear Research) designed and produced a generator of synchrotron radiation, a wiggler. It is used in experiments with elementary particles. This device costs about €1 million, said press service of Institute.
“The two main customers of the newly designed device are CERN and Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (Germany). It will be installed on the accelerator complex ANKA in Germany and it could be exploited for chemical and biological applications. It could be also utilized in accelerators, in the experiments with elementary particles,” specialists from the Institute told TASS.
The wiggler is designed for generating synchrotron radiation, which allows producing a more “thick” beam of particles in the accelerator, thus increasing the efficiency of the experiment. It could also provide powerful X-ray beam for a special microscope which is highly desirable in chemistry, biology, and material science.
The wiggler developed in Novosibirsk is unique because of its novel cooling system. Usually, the liquid helium is applied in cryostat to cool the system. The new wiggler is based on special helium-free refrigerators. Further, Russian wiggler could be in service for years without resorting to laborious repairs.
“German physicists have already tested this device marking its reliability”, the scientists said. The X-ray microscope complemented by the new wiggler is scheduled to launch in the second half of 2016.
