In this paper we discuss the finite-element analysis (FEA) of a one-dimensional beryllium compound refractive lens (Be-CRL) that was undertaken to study the feasibility of installing the CRL in the Inelastic X-ray Scattering (IXS) beamline of National Synchrotron Light Source-II (NSLS-II) (a new state-of-the-art medium-energy third-generation storage ring). The current insertion device for this beamline is an IVU22-6m in-vacuum planar undulator delivering a total power of ~9 kW with a peak power density of ~90 kW/mrad2. Through analysis, based on calculation of spectral angular distribution of undulator radiation from IVU22, we determined that it is essential to install a 30 µm graphite filter upstream of the CRL in order to restrict the temperature rise in the CRL to 65°C for acceptable thermal strain.
