LCLS appoints a Director

John Galayda from the Advanced Photon Source (APS) is to take the position of Director of the Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS) project at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Centre. The LCLS will be the forerunner to the next-generation X-ray source expected to follow the high-energy third-generation sources such as APS, ESRF and SPring-8. This project is of critical importance to the future of the field of synchrotron radiation. David Moncton, director of the APS, commented, “John has made an extraordinary contribution to the APS and to Argonne National Laboratory. With overall responsibility for design, construction, commissioning, operation and continuous upgrading of the APS accelerator systems, John leaves an enormous legacy of accomplishment. The world-leading effort to achieve FEL saturation was also accomplished under his leadership”. Dr Galayda will assume his new position in mid-April.
