At synchrotron radiation facilities vibration is often a problem causing poor quality of photon beams. At the Canadian Light Source (CLS) Hard X-ray MicroAnalysis (HXMA) beamline, the MicroProbe endstation is particularly sensitive to vibrations since very small beam size (∼ 3μm × 5μm) is required. Thus, a measurement system is desired to investigate vibrations of the X-ray beam at HXMA beamline. This paper presents a design of such a X-ray beam vibration measurement system. The system consists of two sub-systems: (a) measurement system and (b) vibration-isolation platform. Mathematical models are developed and detailed design is conducted. The design is numerically investigated and it shows very promising results.
