Henderson on synchrotrons
Stuart Henderson, director of the Advanced Photon Source Upgrade Project, is quoted in a Physics Today story, “Synchrotrons Round the Bend to Make Cheaper, Better X-rays,” on the technology behind fourth-generation light sources.
It’s mind-boggling that in electron storage rings, which have been mature for a couple of decades, there is still a factor of 50 improvement lurking, and if we are smart enough, we can figure out how to grab it.
