SLS 2.0 - The upgrade of the Swiss Light Source SLS
The Swiss Light Source SLS has been in operation since 2001. Now an upgrade to this large-scale research facility, unique in Switzerland, is planned. Science, technology, engineering, and data processing have progressed considerably since SLS was first commissioned. The modernisation project, called SLS 2.0, will allow novel, better, and more profound research than before. In addition, with the new equipment, SLS will retain a leading position in the international field of synchrotron light sources. In December 2020, the Swiss Federal Council will make the final decision on financing the SLS 2.0 upgrade.
