Initially treated as a side effect of experiments at particle accelerators, the synchrotron radiation has become a unique tool in the workshop of physicists, chemists and biologists in the last half-century. There are dozen synchrotron research facilities located in Europe, offering access to synchrotron radiation for research purposes. The youngest of them is the “SOLARIS” National Synchrotron Radiation Centre in Krakow. Six experimental beamlines have been located at the storage ring with a circumference of 96 m, operating at an energy of 1.5 GeV, and four more are under construction. One of them is the SMAUG beamline, financed by an investment grant from the Faculty of Physics of Adam Mickiewicz University and intended for structural research using small-angle scattering of synchrotron radiation. During the seminar, the possibilities of conducting synchrotron research in European synchrotron radiation centres including “SOLARIS” NSRC will be discussed, and the performance and research capabilities of the SMAUG line will be also presented.
