Welcome to the National Synchrotron Radiation Laboratory (NSRL).

NSRL is the first national laboratory in China, which is located on the West Campus of the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC), in Hefei, Anhui Province. It owns the first dedicated synchrotron radiation facility in China, Hefei Light Source (HLS).

The construction of HLS-Iincluded phase-I project (1984-1991) and phase-II project (1999-2004). From 2010, NSRL started HLS-II construction. With its completion, NSRL now owns a fully upgraded soft X-ray synchrotron radiation facility. The synchrotron is close to the 3rd generation level, and the facility is now with ten experimental stations: Infrared Spectroscopy and Microspectroscopy, Combustion and Flame, Mass Spectrometry, Soft X-ray Microscopy, Spectral Radiation Standard and Metrology, Atomic & Molecular Physics, Photoemission Spectroscopy, Catalysis and Surface Science, X-Ray Magnetic Circular Dichroism (XMCD), Angle-resolved Photoemission Spectroscopy. It also has three exit ports now open for future experimental stations.

The superior radiation, together with the well-designed beamlines and experimental stations, allow national-wide scientists to perform cutting edge scientific experiments. The researches cover physics, chemistry, life sciences, material sciences, surface sciences, metrology, medicine, microscopy, instrumentation, and so on.

As a government supported, user-oriented large-scale scientific facility, we enthusiastically welcome researchers from various fields coming to carry out your state-of-the-art research with us.
