Caption

Linear accelerator (LINAC) at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF), Grenoble, France. The LINAC accelerates electrons produced by an electron gun. They are then transmitted to a circular accelerator known as the booster synchrotron. The high energy electrons are then stored in an 844 metre circumference storage ring, before being directed in the form of X-rays to beamlines for use in a variety of experiments. 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.
