Storage Ring Cell
The low-emittance lattice has stringent alignment and stability requirements that have been met by innovative and cost-effective solutions.
For acceptable dynamic aperture the SR support system must meet the following alignment requirements:
* 30 µm is the goal; acceptable limit is 50 µm. An analysis of tolerance stack-up shows that 30-50 µm alignment is not possible with conventional support designs and alignment techniques.
Weight - 3200 kg
Length - 4.83 m
Width - 0.86 m
Height - 0.55 m

Magnet Torque Test
X Center is given by intersection with 0A line
The magnet center can be located to within 4 μm.
Horizontal center, defined as the point of zero slope in B_y Vs. X, can be located to within 5 μm.

Stability Requirements (Vibration and Thermal)
RMS Displacements at CFN (N. Simos)
( 0.5 - 4) Hz : 145 nm
(4 - 30) Hz : 14 nm
(30 - 100) Hz : 1 nm
Support System Design Approach: First resonant frequency > 30 Hz the rms motion that will be amplified by the magnets-girder assembly is only 1 nm.
Girder with Dummy Weights
Vibration tests were performed on:
Rocking Mode, 42 Hz
Bending Mode, 58 Hz
Twisting Mode, 112 Hz
Young’s modulus of the 2” bolt reduced by a factor of 10
MODE 1 ~40 Hz
Maximum vertical misalignment between the magnets: ~0.014 μm (tolerance = 0.025 μm )
Maximum vertical deflection of the vacuum chamber at the BPM locations (near Invar supports) : ~ 0.14 μm (tolerance = 0.20 μm)
DVRT (Displacement Variable Reluctance Transducer)
Composite Support Stand
Mechanical stability requirement: ±0.1 μm (rms, 4-50 Hz)
