Swiss Light Source - SLS
The Swiss Light Source SLS has been in operation since 2001. This large research facility, which is unique in Switzerland, is currently being upgraded to keep pace with the latest developments in science, technology, engineering and data processing.
Following the modernisation project, called SLS 2.0, novel research and more precise investigations will be possible at the SLS. With this technical overhaul, SLS will remain in the top tier in comparison with other international synchrotron light sources. The project is being funded as part of the ERI Dispatch 2021-2024 programme.
