Vacuum Systems for Synchrotron Light Sources

  title={Vacuum Systems for Synchrotron Light Sources},
  author={J. C. Schuchman},
Synchrotron light sources are electron storage rings that produce synchrotron radiation by accelerating electrons in a circular storage ring. The synchrotron light (photon beam) is then used to irradiate various sample materials for basic and applied research in such fields as solid state physics, biology, chemistry, surface science, and technology. The electron storage ring must provide an ultrahigh vacuum environment for the electron beam to minimize electron residual gas collision which… CONTINUE READING
