Photon Factory proposes major upgrade

In order to meet the strong demand for more insertion-device beamlines, the Photon Factory has proposed a future upgrade of the PF Storage Ring to create four new short straight sections of 1.5 m and to lengthen ten existing straight sections. Two insertion devices, ID02 and ID16, could be as long as 9.2 m. Mini-gap insertion devices with gaps of less than 5 mm are also proposed. The Photon Factory has recently invested significantly in its structural biology laboratory and is expected to play a significant role in the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology's Life Science division initiative for a five-year targeted structural genomics project of determining 3000 structures or unique folds.
