The Advanced Light Source (ALS) at Berkeley Lab has seen many upgrades over the years, keeping it one of the brightest sources for soft x-rays worldwide. Recent developments in magnet technology and lattice design (multi bend achromat lattices) appear to open the door for very large further increases in brightness, particularly by reducing the horizontal emittance, even within the space constraints of the existing tunnel. Initial studies yielded candidate lattices which approach the soft x-ray diffraction limit (around 2 keV) in both planes within the ALS footprint.
