An electron storage ring to be used solely as a synchrotron radiation source has been designed for a maximum energy of 1.5 GeV, expandable to 2 GeV, and a maximum current of 1 A, High field superconducting magnet wigglers to serve as hard radiation ports have been incorporated into the ring to make available a wide range of wavelengths for simultaneous experiments. The regular lattice consists of a series of small achromatic bends forming the arcs. The wiggler magnets are placed in low-Ã in the center of insertions separating these arcs. The arrangement minimizes the electron emittances and yields high source brightness. Other machine parameters are dictated by experimental requirements and apparatus as well as by cost constraints.
