A new method is proposed to generate transversely coherent energetic photon beams. It does not rely on stimulated photon emission, therefore, is not subject to the same technological and cost limitations which affect bound-state x-ray lasers and free-electron x-ray lasers. The method leaves unchanged the photon source; it increases transverse coherence by dynamical optical means, i.e., using nonstationary optical elements. It is well suited to first-order interference experiments (e.g., x-ray holography) particularly with synchrotron radiation sources.

    The photon beam radiating from the position-stabilized storage ring tended to show large vertical drift at some beamlines. It had earlier been pointed that the beam drift might be due to the local floor displacement which was caused by the thermal distortion of the storage ring building. An...

    In the past year, the Synchrotron Radiation Center (SRC) staff has installed five new beamlines at SRC.
