In October 2018, scientists from Poland and abroad will gain access to SOLARIS synchrotron research infrastructure. Measurements will be possible on PEEM, XAS, and UARPES experimental end-stations.
In the end of 2017 a photoemission electron microscope had been successfully installed on SOLARIS PEEM/XAS beamline. For the first time in Poland synchrotron radiation was used to image the sample surface with chemical and magnetic resolution.
At the LEAPS launch event in Brussels on 13 November 2017, 16 organisations representing 19 light sources facilities across Europe signed an agreement to strengthen their collaboration. Among the initiators of the agreement and its signatories was prof. dr hab. Marek Stankiewicz, director of the SOLARIS Centre.
On 1 June 2016, Piotr Ciochoń (the Faculty of Physics, Astronomy and Applied Computer Science of the Jagiellonian University - WFAiIS), Mariusz Garb (WFAiIS), Karolina Szamota-Leandersson (SOLARIS) and Jacek Kołodziej (WFAiIS and SOLARIS) did, for the first time, a typical experiment for which UARPES beamline had been designed.
On 9 June 2016, one year after the first start up of the SOLARIS synchrotron, in the storage ring more than 400 mA of beam current was ramped to the final energy of 1.5 GeV.
