As a part of the Argonne Strategic Partnership Project (SPP) 85H21, a collaboration between Advanced Photon Source (APS), Argonne National Laboratory (ANL) and Pohang Accelerator Laboratory (PAL), we have designed, constructed, and tested a thin-film-diamond monochromator for the PAL X-ray Free-Electron-Laser (PAL-XFEL) hard x-ray self-seeding project*. The mechanical design of the PAL-XFEL diamond crystal hard x-ray self-seeding monochromator is based on the APS design of a diamond-crystal monochromator for the LCLS hard x-ray self-seeding project** with enhanced diamond crystal holder for two thin-film-diamond crystals with thicknesses of 30 microns and 100 microns***. The customized high quality thin-film-diamonds and special graphite holder were provided by the Technological Institute for Super-hard and Novel Carbon Materials of Russia (TISNCM)****, and tested at the APS***. An in-vacuum multi-axis precision positioning mechanism is designed to manipulate the duo-thin-film diamonds holder with resolutions and stabilities required by the hard x-ray self-seeding physics. Mechanical specifications, designs, and preliminary test results of the diamond monochromator are presented in this paper.
