The Hefei Synchrotron Radiation Laboratory (HESYRL). An 800 MeV electron storage ring and its synchrotron radiation experiment area.


A group of physicists and engineers at the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC), to which we belong, is now planning a synchrotron radiation facility. The project has recently been authorized by the Chinese Academy of Science and is going to be put in to construction at Hefei, an East-China city, in a few months. The facility will be an intermediate-energy electron accelerator dedicated to synchrotron radiation research. It will be operated by a newly-established laboratory, to be called the Hevei Synchrotron Radiation Laboratory, or HESYRL for short, and guided by the USTC. This is the first serious effort made by Chinese scientists to join the world in this flourishing and fruitful research field. (orig.). Bao,-Z.M.; Xia,-Z.L.
