The existing 15‐year‐old hybrid wiggler at the NSLS has been replaced by a state‐of‐the‐art, cryo‐ready in‐vacuum undulator optimized for a dedicated macromolecular crystallography program. The device is a 1m long, 18mm period, hybrid PM‐type with a minimum operating gap of 5.6mm, and has provision for cryo‐cooling to 150K. Unlike the original SPring‐8 cryo‐PM undulator proposal, we use a new high‐remanence, high‐temperature grade of NdFeB (NEOMAX 42AH with Br=1.3T and Hcj=24 kOe) that can be baked to 100°C to be UHV‐ready in case of cooling system failure. A novel optical gap measurement system using a LED‐based product ensures gap accuracy of ±2 micro meter. A friction stir welding technique is used for the first time in an accelerator UHV device to minimize stress and deformation of the magnet arrays due to temperature gradients. This paper describes design issues of the device and other considerations such as magnetic measurement at low temperature.
