THE NEW 3.0 GEV SYNCHROTRON LIGHT SOURCE AT EECI

This facility houses a 3.0 GeV synchrotron light source and a laboratory, with the aim to increase the capacity and efficiency of Thailand’s synchrotron light generator to become Asean’s center and leader in synchrotron light source technology. The building is designed to accommodate a linear particle accelerator, a circular particle accelerator, an electron storage ring, as well as the beamlines and other utility systems, supporting laboratories and staff operations.


The aesthetic form of the building communicates the functions and processes taking place within. It also communicates the essence of the brand’s DNA, of shared ideas and ideals in the scientific field, as well as a merging of a passion for science, arts, culture, technology, and the desire for continued self-improvement.


Due to the power requirements of the synchrotron light source, which consumes energy equal to a large Bangkok shopping complex, the MEP system is designed to be managed from a Central Utility Plant (CUP). This provides energy efficiency and ease in maintenance and repair, enabling the facility to operate at its highest capacity.
