The Australian Synchrotron is a major research facility located in Clayton, a technology and innovation hub of southeast Melbourne. It is one of Australia's most significant pieces of scientific infrastructure.
Since officially opening our doors in July 2007, we have drawn hundreds of prospective users keen to use our unique capabilities to further their research 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.
