Here is the latest experiment in visualising the electron beam orbits in the storage ring. As the ‘velocity’ of the movement increases, the wavelike effects and lorentz contractions make the space appear distorted and fluid, and at certain velocities, standing waves appear. However, this is peanuts compared to the actual angular velocity of the electrons moving in the ring at a frequency of 13.3 million cycles per second - ouch!
