Title: "Status and Operation of the Metrology Light Source in Berlin"

Speaker: Jörg Feikes, MLS, Berlin


The PTB, the German national metrology institute, owns the electron storage ring Metrology Light Source (MLS) which was built and is operated by the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin. The MLS has been in regular user operation since April 2008 and supports synchrotron-radiation-based metrology and technological developments in the IR, UV, VUV and EUV spectral range. Operating energies range from 105 MeV to 630 MeV.

At the MLS, as a user owned facility, machine state changes are much more frequent than at other synchrotron light sources like BESSYII. The users may change its demands several times a day and may ask each time for another, often very different, machine setting. We will report how we operate the machine in the most flexible way and, at the same time, as reliable as possible.
