Synchrotron radiation is recognized by specialists as one of the most called for instruments for a wide spectrum of fundamental and applied research in physics, materials science, biology, medicine and chemistry. Today around 40 sources of such type operate in the world, and new devices are developed and built. One of them is installed at the Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) located on Long Island, New York. Not long ago the latest synchrotron radiation source NSLS-II (National Synchrotron Light Source) with a record high design beam intensity for machines of such class has been constructed there.

of Nuclear Physics (Novosibirsk) developed a basic unit called booster, an electron storage accelerator with a 158 m perimeter which accelerates the energy beam from 200 MeV to 3 GeV. According to the Science in Siberia newspaper a press conference was held at the institute on April 22, 2014, devoted to a successful execution of this contract valued at US$ 14 mln concluded with the Brookhaven National Laboratory four years ago. The Novosibirsk journalists got to know about the course and results of that scale work from its key participants: Yevgeny Levichev, Dr. Sc. (Phys. & Math.), deputy director for science of the institute, Andrei Steshov, Cand. Sc. (Engineering), head of the experimental production. Sergei Shiyankov, Cand. Sc. (Engineering), head of the design department, Sergei Gurov, research fellow and Pavel Cheblakov, junior research associate.
The newspaper reminds us of the fact that in May of 2010 the institute won an international tender for de-
velopment of this accelerator. In line with the contract ... Читать далее
