The figure-8 undulator is a novel insertion device adopted as a light source at the soft x-ray photochemistry beamline of the Super Photon ring-8GeV. It was designed to produce linearly polarized soft x rays between 100 and 5000 eV with low on-axis power density. Magnetic fields of the constructed device were measured with compensation for the planar Hall effect using two different methods. After magnetic-field corrections, it was found that the first-harmonic intensity and the on-axis power density calculated using the measured fields were almost the same as ideal ones. After installation in the storage ring, a power-distribution pattern was observed by a fluorescent screen and it was found that the shape corresponded to expectation. The quantity of fluctuation of the photon-beam axis was estimated by measuring spectra at various observation angles and it was found to be small compared to the photon-beam size. In addition, it was also found that the measured spectrum at the gap of 77 mm agreed well with the calculated one. © 1999 American Institute of Physics.
