NbTi-Superconductor-Based Superconducting Undulators

Technology available for licensing: NbTi-superconductor-based SCU could pave the way to expanding the X-ray energy range at existing light sources without increasing the electron beam energy.

The SCU technology could be attractive to most existing and newly developed light sources. The cost of any light source is mainly defined by the energy of the electron beam, and so any equipment that permits to minimize that energy without cost escalation will find its way to future light source facilities. SCUs would serve exactly this function, and also will expand the number and type of scientific experiments that can be performed at light sources.
