Beamlines of Indus Synchrotron Radiation Sources



The first Indian synchrotron source Indus-1, a 450 MeV electron storage ring, was commissioned in early 1999. It provides a broad electromagnetic spectrum extending from far infrared to soft x-ray region. It has opened up a possibility to carry out research activity using the soft x-ray/ vacuum ultraviolet radiation (10Å < λ < 1000Å) in India. This wavelength band covers many absorption thresholds of various elements. In addition, due to its shorter wavelength it posses great capability to explore physical structure with much better resolution than that offered by the visible light.
Indus-2 is a synchrotron radiation source of nominal electron energy of 2.5 GeV and a critical wavelength of about 1.98 angstroms.
