Title The SRS at Daresbury Laboratory: a Eulogy to the World's First Dedicated High-energy Synchrotron Radiation Source
Abstract 2008 marks the last year of operation of the Synchrotron Radiation Source (SRS) at Daresbury Laboratory, which circulated its first 2 GeV beam in 1981. This paper provides a look back at the significant milestones passed on the way and records the achievements of many of those involved in its thirty-year programme. Many of the technologies and techniques developed at the SRS at Daresbury are now standard practice at synchrotron light sources around the world; and there are few light source laboratories that do not benefit from the skills of someone who spent their formative years working on the SRS. The provision of synchrotron light for the UK is now being met by DIAMOND, whose success is a testament to the skills of its designers, honed as they were on the SRS at Daresbury. These skills are now being used to design the UK's next-generation light source, to provide the pulsed and longer-wavelength light that DIAMOND cannot.
