  • China's High Energy Photon Source (HEPS) was successfully installed in the Huairou Science City in Beijing.
  • The HEPS, after completion, will stand as one of the brightest synchrotron radiations (SR) sources in the world.
  • It is also the first high-energy synchrotron radiation facility in China.
  • The HEPS is designed to accelerate electrons up to energies of 6 gigaelectron volts within its 1.36-kilometer circumference storage ring.
  • This process will produce high-energy X-rays that can penetrate deep into samples, revealing intricate details at the nano meter scale.
