NADOLSKI, Laurent (Synchrotron SOLEIL)


The SOLEIL synchrotron is the French third generation synchrotron light source (2.75 Gev, 354 m of circumference, 4 nm.rad natural emittance). In operation since 2007, it provides photon beams simultaneously to a total 29 beamlines. The electron beam intensity can reach up to 500 mA depending on the filling pattern (all 5 of them are available, all in Top-Up injection) with sub micrometer stability.

After the first ten years spent improving the reliability of our equipment to reach or approach the goals of 99% beam availability and 100 hours mean time between failure. We continue our efforts to maintain these good results in spite of the important work necessary in parallel to prepare the forthcoming upgrade of our facility. We will present examples of tools and actions that we have developed or implemented to anticipate incidents or reduce their impact, whether they be monitoring programs, incident follow-up, equipment modifications or changes in machine optics settings.
