Having just commenced the 3 month artist in residence program at the Australian Synchrotron, here are the first tests for visualising the form of the synchrotron, the processes used in the synchrotron, and the functions of the synchrotron.

Circular LINAC

An image of the LINAC (LINear ACcelerator) where electrons are accelerated into a beam - a bit like a TV but using 80,000 volts. This image has been made into a ‘circular LINAC’.

Storage and Accelerator Ring panorama 1

An image of the accelerator ring & storage ring, where electron beams are electromagnetically pushed around the 100 metre ring at 99.98% lightspeed. This image has been made into a ‘linear’ panorama.
