Abstract: Superconductive insertion devices (IDs) have higher fields for a given gap and period length compared with the state of the art technology of permanent magnet IDs. This technological solution is very interesting for synchrotron light sources since it permits to increase the brilliance and/or the photon energy at moderate costs. One of the key issues for the development of superconducting IDs is the understanding of the beam heat load to the cold vacuum chamber. Therefore a cold vacuum chamber for diagnostic was built. Here we report about the design, planned measurements and the factory acceptance test of COLDDIAG.
