Caption: Advanced Light Source. Researchers with the Advanced Light Source (ASL) 5-centimetre-period undulator used to create synchrotron radiation. The undulator contains over 100 permanent magnets lined above and below a high-energy electron beam. The magnets force the electrons into a snake-like path so that the synchrotron radiation they give off as they change direction adds together. The undulator is 4.5 metres long and weighs 18 tonnes, but is built to a precision of 50 millionths of a metre - less than the width of a human hair. This undulator forms a straight section in sector 7 of Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory's ASL storage ring.
