The author discusses the development of four generations of storage rings or synchrotrons. The discovery of synchroton radiation (SR) is attributed to Robert Langmuir and Herb Pollok in 1946. The first generation, constructed in the 1950s, were dedicated high-current accelerators for particle physics, while the second generation designed in the early 1970s was dedicated to yield SR with exceptional spectral brightness. The development of high-performance imaging methods is also discussed.

    During injection or instability, the transverse profile of an individual bunch in a storage ring can change significantly in a few turns. However, most synchrotron-light imaging techniques are not designed for this time scale. We have developed a novel diagnostic that enhances the utility of a...

    An analytic model for the advantage of the early application of electron cyclotron current drive (ECCD) in the suppression of neoclassical tearing modes (NTMs) is presented. The improved performance of early ECCD is attributed to the second (smaller) saturation island width, which appears for...
