Nov 6, 2009 Installation of Gyrotron FU II at European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF) for collaborative research work on XDMR(X-ray Detected Magnetic Resonance) measurement
We have brought the Gyrotron FU II to European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF) in Grenoble and installed it at the Beam Line 12. (See the photo below) We hope to begin XDMR (X-ray Detected Magnetic Resonance) measurement using the gyrotron in the next February.
