Abstract For the experiments at synchrotron radiation source BESSY II synchrotron of the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin a new end station and a new beam-line were developed and are now in user operation. The end station contains a 9-2-1 Tesla vectorial magnet and a cryostat with manipulator for the sample cooling and positioning, an UHV deposition chamber, and an UHV detector chamber. We report here on the technical design of the detector chamber which is placed below the magnet chamber and is also connected to the deposition chamber. Because of various constrains a sophisticated mechanics had to be developed to provide integrated functionality for both the detector holder and the sample transfer units. The detector unit consists of a tubular holder of 5 cm diameter which travels more than 60 cm vertically and exhibits an unlimited rotation degree of freedom of 360 degrees within the magnet bore. The sample transfer unit consists of a telescopic movement mechanism allowing for the sample holder vertical travel within the detector tubular holder. The functionality challenges and their resolve were addressed in an innovative mechanical design.
