More than 1,000 participants are attending the Opening Ceremony of the International Year of Light 2015 on 19th and 20th January in Paris. Caterina Biscari, on behalf of light sources, is giving a talk about the frontiers of synchrotron science.
Including a special report about phase-II beamlines and science highlights, industry collaborations, outreach activities and the latest news of ALBA. Enjoy the reading!
A grant has been awarded to ALBA Synchrotron, by the Spanish Competitiveness and Economy Ministry on the 2013 call for scientific and technological equipment and infrastructures to build a helium cryostat.
On December 3rd and 4th, members of the ALBA Scientific Advisory Committee met at ALBA's premises. This session was focused on the evaluation of the received proposals for phase-III beamlines.
From November 13th to 14th, the second edition of the workshop entitled: "ALBA Synchrotron, new instrumentation for Materials Characterization" took place in ALBA. This workshop started last year and is an ALBA initiative co-funded by ALBA and the "Grupo Especializado en Nanociencia y Materiales Moleculares" (NANOMATMOL) from the "Real Sociedad Española de Química (RSEQ) y de Física (RSEF)". The main objective is to provide basic insights about the synchrotron light and its potential applications among those researchers unfamiliar with its analytical possibilities.
