Synchrotron light has finally been observed for the first time on a sample at the end station of the experimental beamline PHELIX. This success is the crowning achievement of three years of hard work designing, constructing, fitting, and tuning its components to the synchrotron beam.
On August 21, 2020, the SOLARIS Centre signed the contract for the supply of a superconducting wiggler, which will be the source of synchrotron radiation for the SOLCRYS beamline. The supplier of the device will be the Budker Institute of Nuclear Physics (Russia).
CERIC-ERIC is calling for proposals for coordinated access to more than 50 instruments and support laboratories. In addition to the possibility to access several instruments through a single application, we offer support for mobility and awards for high quality open access publications.
For the sixth time in our history, we are opening a call for proposals. But for the first time, we have available a new beamline called: PHELIX. The PHELIX end station offers X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy.
A novel method of X-ray tomography, developed by scientists Katarzyna Sowa and Paweł Korecki from the SOLARIS Centre and the Faculty of Physics, Astronomy and Applied Computer Science, the Jagiellonian University has been acknowledged by the prestigious Optical Society (OSA) Publishing, and the image obtained by physicists was featured as the Image of the week.
