The Polish synchrotron light source Solaris is under construction in Kraków. The project is based on the MAX IV light source being built in Lund, Sweden. The 1.5 GeV storage ring for Solaris and part of the injector complex are identical to that of MAX IV, although both are housed in buildings that differ from those of MAX IV. Ground breaking on the green field site at the Jagiellonian University campus occurred at the start of 2012. A detail description of the facility infrastructure, services and construction choices is given together with the latest project developments for main accelerator systems.
