Positron-Electron Tandem Ring Accelerator

Description PETRA III at DESY is a high brilliance 3rd-Generation Synchrotron Radiation Source with a circumference of 2.3 km. PETRA III is the biggest and most brilliant electron-storage ring light source in the world with the particle energy of 6 GeV which is a compromise between achieving a small horizontal emittance of 1.0 nm rad and providing high photon flux in the energy range of 50–150 keV. Since the end of 2012 all 14 beamlines with up to 30 instruments are available for users. PETRA III operation is financed 90% by the German and 10% by the regional governments of Hamburg and Brandenburg. Access to PETRA III for European users has been supported by the European Commission via Biostruct X, ELISA & CALIPSO under FP7.
