(a) Schematic of the four-point crystal bender for the second crystal (Kohzu Precision) and (b) the actual bending mechanism when the crystal is flattened. The geometrical condition of this bender is the same as that of a SPring-8 standard bender (Yoneda et al., 2001BB23). The crystal was clamped with cylindrical rollers (a, b, c and d) of the cradles. The effective length of the rollers is 110 mm. The center distance of the upper cylindrical rollers (a and b) is 80 mm, and that of the lower cylindrical rollers (c and d) is 90 mm. The bending was performed by rotating the cradles around OA and OB owing to the vertical motion of mechanically linked Z stages.  [article HTML]
