New Beamline Almost Ready
Assembling a new, fifth beamline on a tandem accelerator is nearing completion. The main feature of the so-called nanobeam will be improved lateral resolution. The new line will enable a significant quality leap, especially in the measurements of biological tissues at the subcellular level. Most of the line (measuring chamber, vacuum pump, magnetic lenses) is already assembled. In June, we expect a vacuum test, fine-tuning of parameters as well as the first test beam at the measuring chamber.

A group of researchers from the F2 department, in collaboration with colleagues from Sweden, France and Italy, investigated the interference of two-photon transitions, induced by extreme ultraviolet light (XUV). The results have just been released.
In the period from June 6th to June 8th, 2022, the ELME team participated in the exercise ROMENEK 1/2022 - maintaining preparedness for emergency monitoring of radioactivity in the Krško NPP area to provide measurements in case of general threat.
