Synchrotron Sources

 

Synchrotron light (electromagnetic radiation) is emitted when charged particles, in particular electrons or positrons, moving at velocities close to the speed of light, are forced to move in a circular orbit under the action of a magnetic field. The electromagnetic radiation is emitted in a narrow cone in the forward direction, at a tangent to the orbit. The radiation is emitted with energies ranging from infra-red to energetic (short wavelength) X-rays.

Synchrotron radiation has a number of unique properties:

  • High brightness: synchrotron radiation is extremely intense (hundreds of thousands of times more intense than conventional X-ray tubes) and highly collimated.
  • Wide energy spectrum: synchrotron radiation is emitted with a wide range of energies, allowing a beam of any energy to be produced.
  • Synchrotron radiation is highly polarized.
  • It is emitted in very short pulses, typically less that a nanosecond
