Particle Accelerator Beam Steering Magnet

Particle Accelerator Beam Steering Magnet

Item #343

This is one of four beam-steering magnets from the historic Aladdin electron storage ring, a synchrotron particle accelerator. From the 1980s until 2014, this machine produced synchrotron radiation for high-energy physics experiments. Aladdin was housed at the Synchrotron Radiation Center (SRC), located in Stoughton, Wisconsin and operated by the University of Wisconsin–Madison.


What is Synchrotron Radiation

Synchrotron radiation is a type of electromagnetic radiation that is produced when charged particles, such as electrons, are accelerated to near-light speeds and then forced to change direction by a magnetic field. This phenomenon occurs within particle accelerators, where electrons are propelled through a vacuum tube and directed around a circular or elliptical track using powerful electromagnets.

As these high-energy particles bend along the accelerator’s magnetic trajectory, they emit synchrotron radiation across a broad spectrum, ranging from infrared to X-rays. The intensity and versatility of synchrotron radiation make it an invaluable tool for a wide range of scientific and medical research, enabling detailed studies of materials, biological structures, and chemical processes. By providing a powerful and highly controllable source of electromagnetic radiation, synchrotrons facilitate groundbreaking investigations into the fundamental properties of matter and the universe.
