The third-generation Italian synchrotron radiation facility Elettra has been serving the national and international scientific and industrial communities starting from 1993, with continuous upgrades up to the present day. In the storage ring, electrons traveling at nearly the speed of light through undulators, wigglers and bending magnets produce synchrotron radiation, a light ten billion times brighter than that supplied by conventional radiation sources, with tunable wavelength spanning from the infrared to hard x-rays. Beamlines collect and transport this radiation to the experimental stations, where the secrets of matter are revealed thanks to investigation techniques based on spectroscopy, diffraction, absorption, scattering and imaging. Research is carried out in fields ranging from physics to chemistry, from biology to life and environmental sciences, from medicine to cultural heritage.
