ABSTRACT
The article reports on the first x-ray beams produced by researchers from Lyncean Technologies in Palo Alto, California from their Compact Light Source, a miniature synchrotron designed to generate high-density, tunable and near-monochromatic x-ray beams. President Ronald Ruth cites that they saw their first x-ray beam on February 23, 2006. Multi-GeV electron beams stored in large rings of magnets have been traditionally used for synchrotron light source. Protein crystallography is one of the applications of the synchrotron.
