Shine a bright light on an object and you can see it more clearly. Shine intensely bright synchrotron light and you can see objects in astonishing detail, right down to the smallest atoms! 

The light created at the Australian Synchrotron is about a million times brighter than the sun. This brilliant light can be used to assemble tiny machines that would fit into the eye of a needle, to improve cancer detection, to develop new drugs to fight malaria and to improve mining processes. From human cells to paintings and fossils the work done at the Australian Synchrotron is helping to build a brighter future for all Australians.

This is your chance to come and see one of Australia’s most exciting scientific facilities and see how synchrotron science can make life better for everyone.

We will offer tours, activities for kids, photography competitions and even the first on line opportunity to see this unique facility. Come and see us for yourself…
