Caption: Advanced Light Source. Advanced Light Source (ALS) booster synchrotron used to accelerate elec- trons. This circular synchrotron takes electrons from a linear accelerator. The synchrotron uses magnetic fields to accelerate electrons each time they revolve around it. In less than a second the electrons make 1.3 million revolutions, are travelling at 99.999994% the speed of light and have an energy of 15 billion electron volts. The electrons are then passed to the ALS storage ring. This process is repeated several hundred times until the storage ring contains an electron beam equivalent to a current of 250-400 milliamps.
