Synchrotron radiation

  title={Synchrotron radiation},
  author={Robert Walgate},
Since 1970s, when the first synchrotron radiation (SR) facilities became available to condensed matter researchers, they greatly influenced the progress in determining the properties of materials. As synchrotron technology matured at 3 generation machines like ESRF (France), APS (USA) and Spring-8 (Japan), the experimental techniques became more sophisticated and easier to implement. Nowadays, there are more than 50 light sources worldwide (operational, or under construction). 

Feasibility Study of the Erlangen Synchrotron Light Source

This report presents results of the feasibility study of the Erlangen synchrotron light source. ESSQ will cover – on a regional scale – the rapidly increasing need for high-quality synchrotron light


We have made a successful beam injection to the world smallest electron storage ring by the 2/3-resonance injection method. Usefulness of the resonance injection to the extremely small ring was

In Situ and Dynamic Observation of Reactions by Synchrotron Radiation

Synchrotron Radiation (SR), an X-ray beam which is generated using a high- power accelerator, has excellent characteristics of high brilliance, parallel beam, white beam, and pulse beam. We have

The MÖNCH Detector for Soft X-ray, High-Resolution, and Energy Resolved Applications

The Swiss Light Source (SLS) Detector Group at the Paul Scherrer Institut (PSI) has successfully been developing hybrid detectors for synchrotron and X-ray Free Electron Laser (XFEL) applications for

Synchrotron Radiation and Oil Industry Research

Because of its unique properties, synchrotron radiation is a powerful tool for characterisation from which it is possible to obtain specific information in various scientific domains and, in

The high-resolution diffraction beamline P08 at PETRA III.

As one of the first beamlines of PETRA III the high-resolution diffraction beamline P08 is fully operational and specialized in X-ray scattering and diffraction experiments on solids and liquids where extreme high resolution in reciprocal space is required.

It is shown that all requirements could be satisfied by access to three synchrotron radiation sources covering the spectral range from 5 eV to 100 keV.


The basic properties of synchrotron radiation are described, and their relevance to the design of electron and proton rings is discussed. The development of specialized sources of synchrotron

Physics Design Progress towards a Diffraction Limited Upgrade of the ALS

Improvements in brightness and coherent flux of more than two orders of magnitude are possible using multi bend achromat lattice designs [1]. These improvements can be implemented as upgrades of
