An optimal azimuthal orientation for the Si(111) double crystal monochromators to achieve the least glitches in hard X-ray region

Z. Tang, L. Zheng, S. Chu, M. Wu, P. An, L. Zhang and T. Hu

Synopsis: The glitch patterns of the Si(111) Double Crystal Monochromators (DCMs) have been investigated, including the periods, azimuthal angle sensitivities and mirror symmetries of them.
