The Operation group is responsible for the round-the-clock operation of the whole radiation source, including documentation of specific operation results.

The reliability of the ESRF source is ensured through a wide-scale preventive maintenance programme. In the event of equipment failure, fast diagnostics and permanent on-call intervention teams provide rapid solutions to limit beam downtime.

The group is headed by an operation manager, Laurent Hardy, and a deputy, and is composed of two engineers, eight full time operators (FTOs) and one assistant in charge of shift administration and communication.
