Researchers from the CSIC and the ALBA Synchrotron have synthetized and characterised this material with nanometre thickness. The work, published in "Advanced Materials", has applications in spintronics.
An international Symposium on Lasers and Accelerators for Science & Society took place at the end of June in the Liverpool Arena Convention Centre. The event was organized by the LA³NET and oPAC consortia which have received funding from the EU-7FP.
ALBA opens a new call for proposals till September 7th. The experiments will take place from January to June 2016. MX BL13-XALOC proposals will cover the whole 2016.
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.
