Vol. 1 (2020): SEE-LS: A 4th Generation Synchrotron Light Source forScience and Technology

Editor: Dieter Einfeld 

In 2016 the South East Europe International Institute for Sustainable Technologies was proposed by Herwig Schopper and brought to the political level by Sanja Damjanović, Minister of Science of Montenegro. In this framework two design studies have been completed by two groups of European experts: a South East Europe ‘4th Generation Synchrotron Light Source for Science and Technology’ (SEE-LS) and a ‘Facility for Tumour Hadron Therapy and Biomedical Research’. This report concerns the SEE-LS study, which was completed in October 2018. The proposal is to build a 4th generation light source with a circumference of 350 m and 16 straight sections and with an emittance of 178 pmrad for an energy of 2.5 GeV. In a later stage, the machine could be upgraded to 3 GeV. The estimated budget is roughly  170 million Euro, and the first X-rays should be produced in six years. Readers who are not interested in the details can refer to the Executive Summary.
