Synchrotron radiation facilities provide beam lines giving access to high intensity radiation from the visible through to the UV, VUV, soft and hard X-ray regions of the electromagnetic spectrum. In surface and thin film science these facilities are used for a wide range of diffraction and spectroscopic studies. The following are some of the major sites, and an essentially complete international listing is maintained by Note that some of these sites open in a new window.
