Status: New

Development of the SOLCRYS Structural Research Laboratory
at the SOLARIS National Synchrotron Radiation Centre

Leader:     N. Kucerka

Participating Countries and International organizations:
Belarus, Poland, Russia, Slovak Republic, Ukraine.

Issues addressed and main goals of research:
The development of a new laboratory for structural research of new materials (catalysts, polymers, etc.), nanomaterials (nanoparticles, nanocomposites, etc.), materials under extreme conditions (superconductors, perovskites, etc.), and biomaterials (proteins, DNA, etc.) utilizing synchrotron X-rays.

Expected results in the current year:
  • Development of technical infrastructure for the SOLCRYS laboratory.

  • Development and design of the insertion device (superconducting wiggler or other system), which will allow obtaining synchrotron radiation in the range of 5 to 22 keV, to be used by the end stations of the SOLCRYS beamline.
