Special issue on Diffraction-Limited Storage Rings and New Science Opportunities
Guest Editors: Mikael Eriksson and J. Friso van der Veen
Cover illustration: Artistic impression of the new MAX IV facility, currently under construction in Lund, Sweden, and one of a new generation of storage-ring-based synchrotron light sources employing a multibend achromat lattice to reach emittances in the few hundred pm rad range in a circumference of a few hundred metres. This special issue on Diffraction-Limited Storage Rings (DLSRs) contains 22 articles connecting recent advances in accelerator technology with the new science that can be done at upcoming and future DLSRs (see the summary by Eriksson, van der Veen and Quitmann, pages 837-842).
