From June 16th till 19th, the VII AUSE congress (the association of synchrotron users from Spain) and the II ALBA user's meeting have been held at ALBA's facilities.
The ALBA storage ring has recently started operation of a fast orbit feedback system (FOFB) to correct the electron beam orbit. The operation of the FOFB enhances the stability of the photon beam up to 200 Hz.
Monday 1 June saw the start of EuroCirCol, the EC-funded part of the FCC study that will develop the conceptual design for an energy-frontier hadron collider. ALBA is one of the 16 beneficiary partner organizations taking part in this project.
SENER, devoted to engineering and construction, and the ALBA Synchrotron have signed an agreement to commercialize a technological solution developed at ALBA: a new system to bend X-ray mirrors with higher precision at a competitive price.
On May 20th a new exhibition about the ALBA Synchrotron has been released at Cosmocaixa, the science museum of Barcelona managed by ”la Caixa” Foundation.
