The diagnostic beam line at the MAX III synchrotron light source utilizes the synchrotron radiation (SR) in the visible to ultraviolet range to form images of the transverse electron beam profile. The emission and subsequent propagation and focusing of the SR is modeled, taking into account effects such as diffraction and the longitudinally distributed SR generation. A detailed description of the setup of the beam line and method used to determine the transverse beam profile is given in the paper. In order to investigate the imaging method, a series of measurements were performed where the beam line configuration was varied to utilize different wavelengths and polarizations of the SR and different horizontal opening angles of the measurement system. A suggestion is made how to measure future small horizontal beam sizes. (C) 2011 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
