The SOLARIS synchrotron call for proposals is open now. For the moment, three end-stations are available at the SOLARIS synchrotron: PEEM (photoelectron microscopy), XAS (X-ray absorption spectroscopy) and UARPES (angle-resolved photoelectron spectroscopy). Scientists can carry out research in the fields of physics, materials science, chemistry and new electronic materials. For the first time, we also open access to the Cryo-EM.
On August 23, 2019, the annual summer shutdown came to an end. During this period, the necessary service and maintenance works improving the functioning of accelerators are carried out. The most important tasks this year were transporting the undulator to the synchrotron tunnel and installation of the second diagnostic line.
On 17 July, a delegation from the Chinese Academy of Sciences visited the National Synchrotron Radiation Centre SOLARIS of the Jagiellonian University. The aim of the visit is to establish a framework for further cooperation in the area of synchrotron radiation.
Environmental protection, nanotechnology, diagnosis of diseases, and even samples of cosmic dust – these are only some of directions in research that will be performed soon thanks to the decision of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education to finance the construction of two new beamlines and an end station at the SOLARIS synchrotron in Kraków.
The representatives of the CERIC consortium debated for two days at the SOLARIS Centre. The consortium integrates multidisciplinary research infrastructure from Central and South-Eastern Europe.
