The National Synchrotron Light Source (NSLS) is the nation’s largest facility dedicated solely to the production of synchrotron radiation. Located at Brookhaven National Laboratory, about 60 miles east of New York City, it is a national user facility supported by the U.S. Department of Energy. A plan view of the facility appears in Fig. 1.
