Progress on the Australian Light Source

The 3 GeV Australian National Synchrotron Light Source to be constructed at the University of Monash in Melbourne, Australia, has appointed Interim Project Director Max Frank and Technical Director John Boldeman. The Australian source, Boomerang, will provide up to ten ID beamlines and 20 dipole stations. It is a 12-cell 200 m lattice with <20 nm rad emittance. It is anticipated that Boomerang will become operational in 2007. In the initial phase, up to 200 mA beam current is expected to be achieved with a complement of three undulators, one wiggler and five dipole beamlines.
