The aim of this course is to learn the following:

  • Calculate main characteristics of synchrotron source (Bending magnets and Insertion devices).
  • Calculate the heat-load on different beamline components.
  • Simulating beamline optics by ray-tracing to obtain main parameters of the beam, e. g., size and divergence, energy resolution, intensity/flux.
  • Understand basic principles of X-ray optics: Mirrors and Crystals.
  • Basic concepts about coherence.
