MAXIV is shining

Created by hardion

After having commissioned the linac in the spring and getting up to 10 turns a few times in recent weeks, we have now completed the crucial step of keeping electrons circulating in the 3 GeV ring while they lose energy and produce light.

The control system, powered by Tango on steroids, has proven to be highly stable and scalable, controlling more than 7651 devices from hundreds of classes.

We would like to thank the entire Tango community for their excellent work, as well as all of our industrial partners.
