Sannibale, Fernando and Marcelli, Augusto Claudio and Innocenzi, Plinio (2008) IKNO, a user facility for coherent terahertz and UV synchrotron radiation. Journal of Synchrotron Radiation, Vol. 15 , p. 655-659. ISSN 0909-0495. Article.
IKNO (Innovation and KNOwledge) is a proposal for a multi-user facility based on an electron storage ring optimized for the generation of coherent synchrotron radiation (CSR) in the terahertz frequency range, and of broadband incoherent synchrotron radiation ranging from the IR to the VUV. IKNO can be operated in an ultra-stable CSR mode with photon flux in the terahertz frequency region up to nine orders of magnitude higher than in existing thirdgeneration light sources. Simultaneously to the CSR operation, broadband incoherent synchrotron radiation up to VUV frequencies is available at the beamline ports. The main characteristics of the IKNO storage and its performance in terms of CSR and incoherent synchrotron radiation are described in this paper. The proposed location for the infrastructure facility is Sardinia, Italy.
