Caption: European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF), Grenoble, France. The ESRF uses synchrotron radiation emitted as a result of electrons being accelerated around a storage ring housed in the circular building seen in the picture. The radiation is emitted in the form of ultraviolet light and X-rays, which are then used for a variety of experiments in fields as varied as solid state physics, materials science, chemistry, biology and medicine. At the time of its inauguration on September 30, 1994, the ESRF was the world's brightest source of X-rays. It can produce X-rays that are one thousand billion times brighter than hospital X-rays.
