Radiation Source ELBE – Electromagnetic Radiation for Fundamental Research

Justus, M.
Since 2003, the Radiation Source ELBE at the Research Centre Dresden-Rossendorf (FZD) delivers infrared light, X-rays and Bremsstrahlung of high intensity for fundamental research. The experimental proposals are associated with the FZD programs “Advanced Materials Research”, “Cancer Research” as well as “Nuclear Safety Research and come from the institute itself, as well as from international guests.
The design and the technical implementation of the 40 MeV superconducting electron beam linear accelerator are explained with regard to the generation of the different types of secondary radiation. The article also highlights beam diagnostics and optimization of the beam quality and availability with respect to the different demands on its main properties (energy, bunch charge, emittance, time structure) and the ongoing installation of facility parts.
