Indus-1 is the first synchrotron radiation source designed and developed in India. Indus-1 has a critical wavelength of 61Šand a 450MeV electron storage ring. Commissioned in 1999, Indus-1, is routinely operated at a design current of 100mA, though it has operated well up to a beam current of 200mA. Four beamlines on Indus-1 are operational; but a fifth is being commissioned and a sixth is under construction. Indus-2 is currently one of the most important projects in progress at CAT. This will be a synchrotron radiation source of nominal electron energy of 2.5 GeV and a critical wavelength of about 4 angstroms.
