The Advanced Light Source (ALS) is scheduled to be operational in the spring of 1993 as a US Department of Energy national user facility. The ALS will be a next-generation source of soft X-ray and ultraviolet (XUV) synchrotron radiation. Undulators will provide high-brightness radiation at photon energies from below 10 eV to above 2 keV; wiggler and bend-magnet radiation will extend the spectral coverage with high fluxes approaching 20 keV. The ALS will support an extensive research program in which XUV radiation is used to study matter in all its varied gaseous, liquid, and solid forms. The high brightness will open new areas of research from the materials sciences, such as spatially resolved spectroscopy, to the life sciences, such as X-ray microscopy with element-specific sensitivity. Experimental facilities (insertion devices, beamlines and end stations) will be developed and operated by participating research teams working with the ALS staff.<>
