Caption: Storage ring building at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF), Grenoble, France. The ESRF is a particle accelerator that produces high energy radiation. Electrons, generated by an electron gun, are transmitted to a linear accelerator. They then undergo further acceleration in a circular accelerator known as the booster synchrotron. The high energy electrons produced are then transmitted to an 844 metre circumference storage ring where they can be 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.
