SOLEIL Highlights 2018

Share

Looking back on 2018… It will be remembered as the year in which SOLEIL welcomed its 10,000th user, a young woman from the University of Cantabria, ten years after the synchrotron opening to users.
Find the complete retrospective of the year 2018 and a collection of selected outstanding scientific results obtained at SOLEIL in 2018, in the new edition of our Highlights.
