A breakthrough in local, on-demand X-ray synchrotron light
Lyncean Technologies, Inc. located in Fremont, California, was founded in 2001 to develop the Compact Light Source (CLS), a miniature synchrotron x-ray source based on research performed at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory and Stanford University.
Unlike stadium-sized synchrotron radiation sources that require a highly technical support staff, the CLS fits in a typical laboratory space and is designed to be operated directly by academic or industrial end-users.
The first commercial Lyncean CLS, installed at the Munich School of BioEngineering on the campus of The Technical University of Munich, has been in continuous operation since April 2015.
Lyncean’s newest development is a novel EUV source based on coherent photon generation in a compact electron storage ring, specifically designed for high volume manufacturing semiconductor lithography.
