- Part 1: .mov (uncompressed) | .mov | .wmv
The first part shows the injection of the electron beam from the 100-MeV racetrack microtron into the storage ring/synchrotron ASTRID. After injection, the coasting beam (actually bunched at 3 GHz) is bunched tightly into 14 bunches, corresponding to the radiofrequency of 105 MHz in the storage ring after which it is accelerated to the maximum energy of 580 MeV
- Part 2: .mov (uncompressed) | .mov | .wmv
The second part shows emission of synchrotron radiation from the 14 circulating bunches stored at 580 MeV. Observe that the synchrotron radiation is emitted in the undulator and in the bending magnets. The synchrotron radiation has the time structure of the electron beam, and whereas most of the synchrotron radiation is absorbed in the vacuum chambers, a small part travels down the beamlines as light flashes.
- Part 3: .mov (uncompressed) | .mov | .wmv
The third part shows the light travelling down the beamline, being deflected by a mirror before being dispersed by a grating. The slit selects a specific wavelength (colour), and this radiation hits the surface of a material. Photoelectrons are emitted, and these are energyanalysed by a spectrometer.
