SR ring

Synchrotron radiation (SR) is the light emitted by electrons moving at relativistic velocities along a curved trajectory in a magnetic field. The SR beam has huge application potential in the field like material science, micro-machining, as well as biomedical research. In 1989, Sumitomo succeeded in developing a compact SR Ring with the smallest beam track in the world (called AURORA), and then developed the next generation of the compact and economical SR Rings for industrial use (called AURORA-2S) and for experimental research use (called AURORA-2D).
At the same time, Sumitomo developed a recetrack microtron(150MeV) as a compact electron injector.
