|Description||SOLEIL is the French third generation synchrotron facility, operating at 2,75 GeV. 26 beamlines are open to users in 2013, in surface and material science (with emphasis on micronano-spectroscopies, high resolution, magnetism, chemistry), environmental and earth science, very dilute species and biology (crystallography, absorption, small angle scattering, fluorescence, IR microscopy). Areas of excellence are time resolved experiment both in X-ray range (diffraction, photoemission) and in the soft X ray energy range (coincidences spectroscopies at ultrahigh resolution), an extensive use of adjustable photon polarisations (dichroism studies), fully automated protein crystallography beamlines, etc. The 2 last beamlines (‘Nanoscopium’ and ‘Nanotomo’, under construction) will reinforce the SOLEIL capabilities in 2D and 3D imaging (from C Kedge up to 60 keV). About 70% of the available beamtime (5.500 h/y) is allocated to users on the basis of an international peer reviewing-based selection. Since 2008 SOLEIL has welcomed more than 4800 users. More than 25% of the proposals are already originating from non-French users, which show the attractiveness of SOLEIL towards international communities. SOLEIL is partner of other FP7 programs (Research Infrastructures, Marie-Curie actions) which are complementary to the present one. SOLEIL users and research staff produce about 300 papers per year in international scientific journals. SOLEIL is managed as part of a French public company. The members of the SOLEIL Synchrotron company are the CNRS and the CEA.|
