IB-C30-UHV-50W is actively water cooled through copper braids and can absorb a heat load of 50W. Great care have been taken to ensure that the impact of the cooling scheme on the mechanical performance is neglectable. This is in particular achieved through an optimization of the thermal connections to the Cu braids that in our design, exhibits bond-like characteristics.   

The cooling arrangement is implemented in such a way that the beam defining entity can be any of our available blades including; nano-polished rods, knife-edges, single crystals and multilayers. This versatility means that the IB-C30-UHV-50W can be easily tailored to fit the pink beam defining needs of most beamlines at most energies.      

As an addtional and very convenient feature, a DN100CF Port for mounting of ion pumps is an integrated part of the design (see picture below).

IB-C30-UHV-50W is an upgrade of our well-known IB-C30-UHV slit which is used at numerous x-ray facilities around the world.
