New buildings

ESRF Upgrade Programme: New buildings weblink

ESRF 26 Jul 2013

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.

Synchrotron radiation instrumentation

ESRF Upgrade Programme: Synchrotron radiation instrumentation weblink

ESRF 26 Jul 2013

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.

Accelerator and X-ray source improvements

ESRF Upgrade Programme: Accelerator and X-ray source improvements weblink

ESRF 26 Jul 2013

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.

Beamline floor plan

ESRF Upgrade Programme: Beamline portfolio 2015 weblink

ESRF 26 Jul 2013

The first phase of the Upgrade includes the development of eight Upgrade Beamline projects along with refurbishment of existing beamlines.

The ESRF Upgrade science case

ESRF Upgrade Programme: The ESRF Upgrade science case weblink

ESRF 26 Jul 2013

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.
