Paper Abstract

The Pohang Accelerator Laboratory (PAL) has completed a 2-GeV synchrotron radiation source named Pohang Light Source (PLS) by the end of 1994 [1]. The PLS consists of a 2-GeV electron linear accelerator and a 2-GeV storage ring. The PLS is the first synchrotron radiation facility ever built in Korea. The critical photon energy is 2.8 keV at 2-GeV operation. Thus, the PLS is expected to serve many users in vacuum-ultraviolet (VUV) and x-ray regions of the photon spectrum for various research such as basic science, applied science, and industrial and medical applications. Currently, there are two beamlines; one for VUV application and one for x-ray application. This number will be increased to six within a short period of time.
