Synchrotron Radiation Source


Synchrotron Radiation Source

The Synchrotron Radiation Source (SRS) at the Daresbury Laboratory in Cheshire, England was a second generation [cite web |url=http://www.srs.ac.uk/srs/news_extras/news_extra5.htm |title = Synchrotron Radiation Source, Daresbury Laboratory - World-Leading Project|accessdate=2007-10-13] synchrotron radiation source. The research facility provided synchrotron radiation to a large number (at one point 38) experimental stations [cite web |url=http://www.srs.ac.uk/srs/stations.htm |title = Synchrotron Radiation Source, Daresbury Laboratory - STATIONS |accessdate=2007-10-13] and had an operating cost of approximately £20 million per annum. [cite web |url=http://www.srs.ac.uk/srs/facts/facts_and_figures.htm |title = Synchrotron Radiation Source, Daresbury Laboratory - Facts and Figures|accessdate=2007-10-13] .

SRS had been operated by the Science and Technology Facilities Council. It has now been turned off for the last time.

History

Construction commenced in 1975 and the first experiments were completed using the facility by 1981. [cite web |url=http://www.srs.ac.uk/srum05/srum_timeline2.htm |title = Synchrotron Radiation User Meeting |accessdate=2007-10-13] In 1997 Dr. John Walker won a the Nobel prize for his work on ATPase which he carried out at the SRS.
