A nonprofit organization gathering enthusiasts of synchrotron radiation (SR) application in science. The statutory goals are scientific and educational activities promoting SR, including strong lobbying in favour of construction and scientific applications of the first Polish synchrotron SOLARIS.
Since its establishing in 1991 the Society has showed outstanding activity:
– organizing conferences and schools: International School on Synchrotron Radiation in Natural Science (ISSRNS) biennially (even years) and the National Symposium of Synchrotron Radiation Users (KSUPS) biennially (odd years),
– providing Polish representation in international bodies,
– easing access of Polish scientists to large world scientific infrastructure (synchrotrons and free electron lasers),
– broadcasting to the community information about relevant events, activities, providing link to the international community,
– publishing Synchrotron Radiation In Natural Science – Bulletin of the Polish Synchrotron Radiation
Society as well as other post-conference materials (publications in international journals) and
educational materials (in Polish).

The first published SOLARIS based research

The first scientific article presenting research performed at SOLARIS beamline has been published in a prestigious Nature Research journal – Scientific Reports. The authors investigate one-directional anisotropy induced by exchange interactions (exchange bias)- the phenomenon already known for over 60 years. The most often it is observed in double layers AFM/FM
