Synchrotron radiation – why, what for, how, and presentation of SOLARIS Synchrotron Radiation Centre

November 3, 2021 , 13:00 14:00

Speaker: Prof. Jacek J. Kołodziej
Affiliation: Departament of Synchrotron Radiation, Jagiellonian University, Kraków, Poland

Synchrotron radiation is a broadband electromagnetic radiation collimated, with a relativistic transformation, into extremely bright beams. Within the IR, UV, and X-ray spectral ranges synchrotron radiation beams are by far superior to any other and the best suited for scientific research. In my presentation I will explain why laboratory radiation sources cannot match synchrotron radiation sources giving attention to the conservation of radiance in electromagnetic fields, basic radiation emission phenomenon, and relativistic collimation effects. In the second part of my talk I will present the SOLARIS synchrotron radiation centre and research opportunities it offers. 

Chairman: Prof. Jarosław W. Kłos
