The proposals listed below highlight potential future development opportunities for the Australian Synchrotron and are listed to allow the community an opportunity to further develop these submissions.

Atomic and Plasma Science Beamline

The beamline proposed herein links IR/vis with a wide X-ray range facility to an Electron Beam Ion Trap, one of the great atom traps in the world, of which there are currently only a handful in existence leading cutting edge research in Japan, USA, Europe and China. Combining an IR/vis/X-ray line with an EBIT, affords the opportunity for enormous and unique advances in pump-probe, resonance and high accuracy fundamental science investigations.
