Have sample, need light? Europe's synchrotrons and free electron lasers (FELs) produce powerful beams that enable scientists to look right into the heart of matter. Many of them are accessible to external users. An EU-funded project has created a virtual gateway for access to these facilities as part of its remit to support the network and its users.
