Laboratory Director Doon Gibbs called it a "significant advance" and said, "Achieving stored beam means the team can now accelerate further optimization of the storage ring. Thanks in particular go to Division Director for Accelerator Systems Ferdinand Willeke for his strong leadership of the design, construction, and commissioning of the NSLS-II accelerator systems."
This achievement is the result of more than seven years of planning, design, construction, and commissioning by the Photon Sciences staff.
More details on the technical aspects of this accomplishment and the next steps will be coming soon.
