Watching catalysts at work • Imaging the nanoscale • Capturing natural complexity
National Synchrotron Light Source II (NSLS-II) shines ultra-bright light into the unknown using an array of advanced scientific instrumentation at beamlines with x-ray, ultraviolet, and infrared light. It is one of the newest and most advanced synchrotron facilities in the world. It enables the study of material properties and functions with nanoscale resolution and exquisite sensitivity. It provides research tools needed to foster new discoveries and create breakthroughs in critical areas of science, such as energy security, environment, and human health. And its journey is just beginning.
NSLS-II is a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science User Facility operated for the DOE Office of Science by Brookhaven National Laboratory under Contract No. DE-SC0012704.
