Arnaud Madur, Berkeley Lab Director’s Exceptional Achievement Award (2015)

The ALS Brightness Upgrade Team led the largest improvement of the Advanced Light Source (ALS) storage ring since the facility was built in 1993. The brightness improvement enables experiments at the ALS to be executed more quickly and with better spatial and spectral resolution. Mechanical Engineer, Arnaud Madur, was the lead engineer for the team that led the emittance upgrade. Christoph Steier (Accelerator Technology and Applied Physics Division) and Arnaud Madur received a Berkeley Lab Director’s Exceptional Achievement Award in the Scientific category for their scientific achievement in improving the performance of the ALS beamlines.
