Electrons Light the Way at SURF

Lucy Hagan

Synchrontron radiation is currently viewed by scientists in many fields as an ideal source of light for experiments in science and technology. A recent report by the National Academy of Sciences1 states that over the next ten years both construction of new facilities dedicated solely for use as sources of synchrotron radiation and expansion and dedication of existing facilities are required to meet national needs. To respond to this national need for extreme ultraviolet synchrotron radiation facilities, the National Bureau of Standards (NBS) is making available its dedicated Synchrotron Ultraviolet Radiation Facility (SURF) to users in the general scientific community outside NBS. more>>
