European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF), Grenoble, France. The ESRF produces high energy radiation. The process begins with electrons, generated by an electron gun, which 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 (pictured) to 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.
