Synchrotron SOLEIL is the French synchrotron facility, located on the Saclay Plateau near Paris, with 29 beamlines in operation. Employing about 350 people, the company, whose shareholders are CNRS and CEA, is at the cutting edge of 3rd generation 2.75 GeV synchrotron source, both in terms of brilliance and stability. SOLEIL covers a very wide range of energies, from infrared to hard x-rays, and provides spectroscopic and imaging techniques highly relevant to BIG-MAP, in which SOLEIL is strongly involved (WP5, WP8 and WP9).

Used by over 5 000 researchers coming from France and abroad, SOLEIL has developed automated data acquisition pipelines (for both local and remote use).
