Upgrade for European light source

Upgrade for European light source | Physics |

European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF). One of Europe's premier scientific research laboratories is to go through a major upgrade.

Mikko Hakala's insight:


European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF) is a most powerful X-ray machine in Europe, supported and shared by 20 countries. See ;


ESRF is going through a major upgrade. This BBC article by @BBCAmos (via @tmertzi) tells some essential information what this means to ESRF. See how much more radiation will be obtained, how much will the upgrade cost and the timetables.


How synchrotron X-rays are generated and how research is done with them? Here is one recent video from a canadian synchrotron explaining basic operation:
