About Institute of Advanced Science Facilities, Shenzhen
The Institute of Advanced Science Facilities, Shenzhen (IASF) is a research institute which is responsible for the whole life cycle planning, construction, operation and maintenance of the integrated particle facilities.
IASF is a multi-disciplinary research center based on the integrated particle facilities in Shenzhen, Guangdong Province, China. At the primary phase, two active infrastructure projects recently have been being funded and under design and construction, a diffraction limited synchrotron light source and a Shenzhen superconducting soft-X-ray free electron laser (S3FEL).
The Shenzhen synchrotron light source has a fourth-generation diffraction-limited storage ring with the electron energy of 3 GeV at a low emittance of 50-150 pm·rad. It provides photons with a broad range of energies from 4 MeV to 160 keV and a brightness of 1021 phs/sec/mm2/mrad2/0.1%BW.
S3FEL consists of a 2.5 GeV CW superconducting linear accelerator and four initial undulator lines, aims at generating X-rays between 40 eV and 1 keV at rates up to 1MHz. With these two facilities, IASF will become a world-class light source science center. Read More.
