The Australian Synchrotron is Australia’s newest and brightest major national research facility, and one of the nation’s busiest.
Since officially opening our doors in July 2007, the synchrotron has hosted thousands of visitors, scientific and otherwise. These have included over 2500 individual users from research groups using the synchrotron’s state-of-the-art beamlines to further their research objectives, and hundreds more potential users we hope to see using the facility soon.
Enhanced access to synchrotron technologies is helping Australian scientific and industrial researchers to achieve and retain positions at the forefront of their fields, boosting Australia’s reputation in world scientific circles, enabling a stronger national contribution to the international development of advanced research capabilities and techniques, and attracting experts from around the globe to live and work in Australia.
