The National Solaris Synchrotron Radiation Center in Krakow began the construction of the Phelix research line. It will be the fourth line in the university synchrotron.
In Krakow, a straight section chamber under the undulator is installed, with the elements manufactured and assembled by the German company FMB Feinwerk- und Meßtechnik GmbH. The investment was supported by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education with nearly PLN 10 million.
In the National Synchrotron Radiation Center Solaris at the Jagiellonian University there is a synchrotron – a source of electromagnetic radiation. This radiation will be used for research in many fields of science: from physics, chemistry and medicine to archeology and art history. The Krakow synchrotron is the first and only research infrastructure of this type so far in Central and Eastern Europe.
