ALICE shines at STFC Daresbury Laboratory
By Wendy Ellison
A light source of unprecedented brilliance, the technology of which is poised to be responsible for significant advancements in fields such as healthcare, materials science and sustainable energy and to open up vast new areas for scientific exploration that have previously been inaccessible, has been achieved at STFC's Daresbury Laboratory.
Scientists working on ALICE (Accelerators and Lasers In Combined Experiments), an R&D prototype for the next generation of accelerator based light sources, have successfully demonstrated Europe's first Free Electron Laser to be operated on an energy recovery particle accelerator, on 23 October 2010.
A Free Electron Laser (FEL) is unparalleled in its capability as a light source, the intensity of light emitted is so strong, and of such exceptional quality, that it can be used to surgically remove a brain tumour without damaging the surrounding tissue and it can even weld metal.
