Australian Synchrotron Monash University

Design Objectives
Following national and international consultation, the design objectives for the Australian Synchrotron are:

  • energy of 3 GeV to provide high performance in the x-ray energy range 100 eV to approximately 65 keV
  • competitive with other third-generation compact facilities under construction
  • adequate beamlines and experimental stations to satisfy 95% of the research requirements of an expected Australian user community of 1,200 researchers
  • internationally competitive performance for essentially all Australian industry requirements.

A key measure of the performance of the machine is provided by either the brightness curves for undulators or flux curves for wigglers. The brightness for a 22 mm in-vacuum undulator is presented at this link - http://www.synchrotron.vic.gov.au/content.asp?Document_ID=1134
