Beijing Synchrotron Radiation Facility
Beijing, China

As a part of Beijing Electron Positron Collider (BEPC) project, Beijing Synchrotron Radiation Facility (BSRF) was constructed almost in parallel with BEPC and has been opened to users since 1991. After the upgrading project of BEPCII, BSRF runs in 2.5GeV full-energy injection and 250mA beam current in the dedicated mode of synchrotron radiation. The intensity of hard X-ray has increased one magnitude and the stability was also improved greatly.1

3W1A is a Macromolecular crystallography beamline operating in the 6-16 keV range, which locates at III quadrant of BEPC and 13# experimental hall. It’s mainly used for macromolecular crystallography. This beamline only runs in the dedicated mode of synchrotron radiation. 2
