The Advanced Light Source (ALS) at Berkeley Lab remains one of the brightest sources for soft x-rays worldwide. A multiyear upgrade of the ALS is underway, which includes new and replacement x-ray beamlines, a replacement of many of the original insertion devices and many upgrades to the accelerator. The accelerator upgrade that affects the ALS performance most directly is the ALS brightness upgrade, which reduced the horizontal emittance from 6.3 to 2.0 nm (2.5 nm effective). Magnets for this upgrade were installed starting in 2012 followed by a transition to user operations with 2.0 nm emittance in spring 2013.

A total of 51 combined function magnets is required to upgrade the Advanced Light Source (ALS) Storage Ring at LBNL. These magnets will provide 4 types of magnetic fields: sextupole, horizontal and vertical dipoles, and skew quadrupole and will enable an emittance reduction and upgrade of the beam quality in the ALS ring. A relatively new procedure using EDM cut poles after core assembly that was first used by Buckley System Ltd, NZ was adopted during the production of these magnets. Also, a new 3D CAD modeling was used for the coil design. A total of 57 magnets (including prototypes and spare magnets) were built by the Shanghai Institute of Applied Physics (SINAP) in China. These magnets have achieved extraordinarily high pole profile accuracies and exhibit excellent coil performance characteristics: resistances and water flows reached a high degree of consistency. Consequently, the system errors of the magnetic field of these magnets all meet the LBNL specifications. This paper will summarize the mechanical quality and magnetic field properties of these magnets. The interrelationship between the qualities of coil and the magnet field will be described as well.
