X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS) of transition metals require the light source to cover the hard x-ray region below 13 keV, which is also required for hard x-ray photo-emission (HAD-PES) experiments. This talk will describe how the wavelength limitations inherent to low-energy storage rings are extended into shorter wavelength range. Based on a simple principle of the critical wavelength dependent on a magnetic field for given energy electrons, two possible schemes, i.e., superconducting wiggler (SCW) and superconducting bending magnet (SCBM, or superbend) are compared. As typical case studies, SCW at 1.4 GeV Saga-LS and SCBM at 1.2GeV AichSR are compared. A common feature is the use of a GM refrigerator to avoid liquid helium cryostat, paying attention to “Helium Schock” that may cast doubt to a stable supply beyond 2020. Possible schemes for HLS-II that would allow the energy upto 13 keV are presented for discussion of attendants. This work is supported by “High-end Foreign Experts Recruitment Program of China”.
