I have been using the optical beamline of the Synchrotron to illuminate objects, via an array of filters, lenses and prisms mounted on an ‘optical workbench’. In particular, I have been using the filtered optical frequencies to illuminate an old incandescent lightbulb from my childhood.. Here is an example of my first ‘experiment’ directly using synchrotron energy to re-illuminate the old light.
