Why synchrotron radiation?
Compared with other light source, the main features of synchrotron radiateon are:
 High Intensity
 Continuous Spectrum
 Excellent Collimation
 Low Emittance
 Pulsed-time Structure
As an example, the intensity of synchrotron X-rays is more than a million times higher that of X-rays from a conventional X-ray tube. Experiments that took a month to complete can now be done in only a few minutes. With synchrotron radiation, molecular structures that once baffled researchers can now be analyzed precisely, and this progress has opened up many new research fields over the last few years.
