publié le , mis à jour le

Monday 3 November 2014 night, at 11:30pm, the X-ray beam produced by the PUMA wiggler entered the optics hutch for the first time. On the photo, one can see the beam exiting the frontend that excites the air molecules, which then emit visible light. This is an important milestone for the construction of the PUMA beamline that marks the beginning of the installation phase. The start of user experiments is foreseen for 2016.
