Synchrotron Radiation and Instrumentation at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility
Languages of publication
A low-emittance 6 GeV storage ring aimed at producing high-brilliance synchrotron radiation from 29 insertion devices and 27 bending magnet ports is being presently constructed in Grenoble, France. The insertion devices include undulators, wigglers and wavelength shifters giving access to high-brilliance undulator radiation as well as extremely high-flux wiggler radiation. The energy of the storage ring will produce fundamental radiation around 1 A from the undulators whereas the critical energy of the wigglers in some cases approaches 30 keV. The wavelength shifters will produce useful radiation well into the hundreds of keV region. In order to cope with the high thermal load from the insertion devices novel cooling schemes such as cryogenic cooling as well as adaptive mirror technology is being implemented. The European Synchrotron Radiation Facility will start its operation with 7 beamlines in 1994. A total of 30 facility beamlines will be built by 1999.
