An adjustable phase undulator (APU) is an undulator that tuning the resonance photon energy by adjusting the relative longitudinal position of the magnet arrays without changing the gap. For the elliptical polarized undulators that can produce linear polarized light in arbitrary angle, the adjustable longitudinal position is an inherent function. So the mechanical design and cost of the APU are simpler and cheaper than that of the adjustable gap undulator (AGU) respectively. But there exists unavoidable transverse gradient of magnetic field as well as the longitudinal magnetic field. These unwanted magnetic field component can cause many unwilling effects such as bending of trajectory, betatron tune shift and degrading of the performance of the synchrotron radiation. This presentation covers the topics including the origin of transverse gradient field, the coupling of gradient field and the trajectory, the properties of synchrotron radiation of an APU and some related issues such as the shifting of resonance photon in circular polarized mode.
