Last batch of Libera Brilliance+ units safely reached Taiwan Photon Source





In May 2011, the Taiwan Photon Source (TPS) Beam Position Processor Electronics was contracted to Instrumentation Technologies for the Libera Brilliance+.



Recently, the National Synchrotron Radiation Research Center has received the final batch of Libera Brilliance+ units. The units are currently undergoing a site acceptance test (SAT) and will soon be ready for installation in the new TPS machine.

The first Taiwan synchrotron light source at the National Synchrotron Radiation Research Center (NSRRC) has been operational for twelve years. Scientists from across the nation and all over the world have been visiting to conduct pioneering scientific research, with remarkable growth in both research quality and quantity, meeting global standards.

The new Taiwan Photon Source is a response to the immense competition in the international scientific arena, and the rapid development of global synchrotron light sources and the insufficient brightness of the present Taiwan Light Source (TLS).

At Instrumentation Technologies, we are proud to be a part of this project. According to TPS's physicists and engineers, the Libera Brilliance+ will be the key building block to establish unprecedented beam stability and will allow more extensive machine physics studies. These can now be conducted due to large data buffers and the new true turn-by-turn position calculation of the Libera Brilliance+. They also state that the Libera Brilliance+ offers a large playground for custom-written applications utilizing Virtex 5 and Virtex 6 FPGAs (read more).
