Speakers: Ian Munro

A history of Synchrotron Radiation in the North West:
In 1966 Ian Munro realised that the 4 GeV electron beam in the NINA Synchrotron would produce synchrotron radiation.
The resulting beam of X-rays was a million times brighter than those in use by chemists and biologists at the time.
He was highly influential in setting up the Synchrotron Radiation Source at Daresbury, the first dedicated facility of its kind in the world.
Subsequently, Munro became Head of Synchrotron Radiation Division at Daresbury Laboratory. He retired in 1997, and now holds an Emeritus Professorship at the University of Manchester.
