Workshop on the integration of the USSR into the European community of advanced light sources

The CREMLINplus WP4 "Workshop on the integration of the USSR into the European community of advanced light sources" takes place on 01.12.2021 as a hybrid event.

 

This CREMLINplus Workshop is devoted to the integration of the USSR into the European community of advanced light sources. The USSR4 (Ultimate Source of Synchrotron Radiation) project aimes at the construction of a diffraction-limited 4th generation synchrotron light source in the Protvino (Moscow) region. The accelerator complex will consist of a 6 GeV storage ring (SR) with a horizontal emittance < 70pm and a full-energy linear accelerator for top-up injection. The same linear accelerator will be also used to drive a free electron laser.

As the first priority the following beamlines are planned:

  • High degree of coherence:
    • Coherent applications - CDI - Coherent Diffractive imaging
    • XPCS and SAXS - X-ray photon correlation spectroscopy
  • High Energy:
    • Multiscale X-ray imaging
  • High Brightness:
    • Surface and interfaces
    • Serial crystallography
    • Magnetic scattering
    • Time-resolved experiments
    • Nanodiffraction and nanofocusing
  • General beamlines:
    • XAFS and QXAFS
    • HAXPES - Hard-X-ray PES
    • Classical PES and ARPES
    • Classical crystallography

In phase II several special beamlines will be added:

  • Class II Bioprotected MX and SAXS
    • Cultural heritage and palaeontology
    • High pressure beamline
    • Mössbauer spectroscopy beamline

The Russian synchrotron users community expressed a specific request for high energy photons (up to 300keV).

USSR4 is a Russian national project; nevertheless the facility will be open to the international scientific community. The goal of the workshop is to present the current status of project to the League of European Accelerator-based Photon Sources and start discussions on the next steps to incorporate the USSR4 facility into the landscape of European light sources.

The workshop is an event within CREMLINplus WP4 – USSR4 - Collaboration with USSR4, Task 4.7 Support strategic coordination of USSR; Related CREMLINplus Deliverable: D4.3

Lead beneficiary: NRC Kurchatov Institute
