Rendering of the NSLS-II
The world-leading capabilities of the National Synchrotron Light Source II (NSLS-II) are essential in order to tackle some of the most important scientific challenges of our time. For example, scientific discoveries at NSLS-II will lead to major advances in alternative energy technologies, such as hydrogen and solar. Scientific breakthroughs in developing new materials with advanced properties could pave the way to:
NSLS-II construction began in 2009 and the facility is scheduled to open in 2015. During its construction and operation, NSLS-II is expected to create more than 1,250 construction jobs and 450 scientific, engineering, and support jobs, plus additional jobs at U.S. material suppliers and service providers.
