The inauguration of the first German electron storage ring for synchrotron radiation (BESSY I)

1982
With the electron storage ring in Wilmersdorf, Berlin, physical science had a new large device in which the Max Planck Society participated as a co-operator. The particle accelerator, with a circumference of 60 metres, generated radiation which helped with the study of atomic structures. Bessy I was used until 1999 and was then replaced by Bessy II in Adlershof, Berlin.
