Our homemade sample heater (that we bring to the APS) is a hollow copper cylinder 40 mm long, 22 mm DIA.) with a copper front face where the sample is fixed. Concentrically inside the Cu cylinder is a small light bulb carrying at maximum 24 Volts and 2 Amperes. This light bulb serves as a heater. - The electric power for the light bulb will be provided by a commercial LakeShore temperature controller that is standard unmodified NRTL approved equipment available at beamline 3-ID. We do NOT bring a temperature controller to the APS, but we will use the LakeShore temperature controller available at beamline 3-ID.
