Smart*Light 2.0: High-value ‘tabletop synchrotron’


The project Smart*Light 2.0 aims to develop a ‘tabletop synchrotron’—a reliable and optimized instrument for specific X-ray analysis techniques, with a focus on fluorescence, diffraction, scattering, spectroscopy, and tomography. These techniques enable researchers to investigate the elemental composition, atomic structure, nanostructure, chemical composition, and 3D structure on a sub-millimeter scale—a critical aspect of material
