Image of the ALS

How will the ALS look 20 years from now? The current vision, as presented to DOE, involves a light source cluster comprising an upgraded ALS, a Coherent Infrared Center (CIRCE), and a Linac-Based Ultrafast X-Ray Source (LUX). The cases for these developments were made last month to a subcommittee of DOE’s Office of Basic Energy Sciences (BES) Advisory Committee that has been charged with reviewing proposals for major new facilities at BES-sponsored laboratories. Full Story.
