This chapter introduces the subject of synchrotron radiation by explaining the history of particle accelerators and hence the development of these sources of intense light. An overview of the photon output properties of bending magnets, undulators, and wigglers is given. Simple arguments based upon special relativity are used to predict the spectrum and other source properties.

Keywords:   synchrotron radiation, accelerator, history, particle accelerator, bending magnet, spectrum, relativity
