ESRF linear accelerator

ESRF linear accelerator


Rights Managed


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.
