A new synchrotron radiation [SR] facility, ASTRID2, is being commissioned at Aarhus University. Housed in the Department of Physics and Astronomy, ASTRID2 replaces the current ASTRID source and is designed as a very high brightness source of SR in the range of photon energy of a few eV up to 1 keV. ASTRID2 is a partner in the new EU Transnational Access-program CALIPSO, filling an important niche in SR for European science.

ASTRID2 runs at 580 MeV and will be world-leading in the low photon energy range at <100 eV, with small source…
