1

electron gun

generates electrons by electrically
heating a tungsten cathode

2

linear accel
erator
(linac)

accelerates electrons to a speed of
0.999c and energy of 100 MeV using
an alternating electric field

3

booster ring

increases electron energy from 100
MeV to 3 GeV (effectively, a smaller
synchrotron)

end station

housing where synchrotron radiation is
used to gather data for experiments
