National Synchrotron Light Source II achieves first stored electron beam

(Phys.org) —Scientists and engineers at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Brookhaven National Laboratory achieved a major milestone in the commissioning of the state-of-the-art National Synchrotron Light Source II (NSLS-II) on April 5, 2014. For the first time, Associate Laboratory Director for Photon Sciences Steve Dierker and his project team were able to store electron beam in the NSLS-II storage ring overnight Friday into Saturday, with an initial beam lifetime of about three hours.
