Documentation related to the Upgrade Programme
Producing nano-sized beams needs long beamlines, which, at the ESRF, will reach 120 metres and in two cases even 250 metres. A combination of two extended experimental hall buildings along with a satellite building for the very long beamline ID16 with two end stations addresses this need.
Making available state-of-the-art instrumentation and associated enabling technologies are one of the pillars of the Upgrade Programme. Driven by the upgrade beamline projects, many different key technological areas have been identified and tackled.
The reliability and high performance of the accelerator complex producing the X-ray beams has always been a key element of the ESRF’s success.
The first phase of the Upgrade includes the development of eight Upgrade Beamline projects along with refurbishment of existing beamlines.
X-rays are ideally suited for studying matter at the atomic length- and time-scales. Scientists use brilliant beams of X-ray photons for experiments in physics, chemistry, health and life sciences, material sciences, environment, industrial research and increasingly cultural heritage.
