Insertion Devices Group



The Insertion Devices group is the world leader in the field of designing and developing in-air and in-vacuum insertion devices for synchrotron light sources.

Our flexibility and proximity to end users on the beamlines ensures tailor-made dedicated insertion devices for different energy ranges and photon flux density.

More than 15 revolving undulators service the ESRF beamlines. Constant advances in technology mean that the in-vacuum undulators can be operated with a minimum magnetic gap of 6mm which will continue to be reduced in the future.

The group is currently composed of 8 engineers and technicians, under the management of Joël Chavanne.
