SCU20M. Breig, KIT
Technology transfer success story

Superconducting magnet systems, a wiggler and an undulator (SCU) produce first light at the newest addition, the HEX beamline, to the NSLS-II (3 GeV electron storage ring at Brookhaven National Laboratory, USA) and at the new BioSAXS beamline at The Australian Synchrotron. The quality assurance was performed by mobile, KIT-built measurement systems on-site by IBPT personnel. The commercially available SCU technology has been developed by KIT IBPT and Bilfinger Noell GmbH. News: "First Light at HEX",  "First Light at ANSTO BioSAXS".
