Caption: Advanced Light Source Facility. Aerial view of the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory's Advanced Light Source Facility (ALS) in San Francisco, USA. The ALS is housed in the circular building at centre. It consists of rings which are used to accelerate & store beams of electrons using magne- tic fields. These high- energy electrons give off synchrotron radiation when they change direction. Undulator and wiggler devices make the electrons emit laser-like beams at X-ray and ultraviolet wavelengths. These beams are 100 million times brighter than those from the most powerful X-ray tubes. The ALS was first operated in October 1993.
