D-Lecture on 30th November 2018: Undulators for existing and future light sources

Prof. Efim Gluskin headed the accelerator physics department at Advanced Photon Source from 2004 to 2010 and continues to be active in undulator development.

Prof. Efim Gluskin from the Argonne National Laboratory will present on 30th November 2018 his thoughts on Undulators for existing and future light sources. After the presentation we will have time for informal discussion with "mulled wine and gingerbread" in the BESSY foyer.

Light source facilities make up the largest percentage of accelerators built around the world. These large scale instruments offer a multitude of experimental methods for material physics, chemistry, and biology. In the past two decades the primary source of radiation at the majority of light source facilities was from undulators; at free-electron lasers (FELs), undulators are the only source of radiation.

From 2004 to 2010, Prof. Efim Gluskin was the head of the Accelerator Division at the Advanced Photon Source APS in Argonne National Lab. Under his leadership the APS team designed and built the first undulator line for the x-ray FEL at Stanford. In the last years he developed a novel undulator for the upgrade of that facility. In the last decade Gluskin has led successful developments of novel superconducting undulators; three of these are currently in operation at the APS. SCUs are integrated into the design of the next generation of the APS storage ring and are being considered for the high-energy upgrade of the Stanford x-ray FEL.
