Good progress on BioSAX despite lockdown challenges
The radiation shielding hutches for the fourth BRIGHT Beamline, BioSAXS, arrived at the Australian Synchrotron in early August. The European manufacturer worked alongside a Victorian engineering company with specialist engineering and technician teams from the Synchrotron for a seamless installation. Completion of the hutches is on track for October 2021.
Micro-Computed Tomography (MCT) beamline - hutches installation underway.
January 2021 saw the arrival of four shipping containers of radiation safety hutch panels for the first new BRIGHT beamline, Micro-Computed Tomography (MCT). Installation commenced shortly thereafter with the manufacturer, Caratelli SAS, working in conjunction with Victorian-based company, Lycopodium Limited.
