Synchro' what?  Synchrotrons! New light sources to explore the heart of materials

Seminar on Synchrotron light sources - Come and learn how brighter beams help us to explore the heart of materials.

As well as being a new word in our vocabulary, synchrotrons are scientific facilities generating x-ray beams through acceleration of electrons to nearly the speed of light.  These x-rays are a thousand billion times brighter than hospital x-ray machines and enable scientists to look at the molecular and atomic composition of the world around us.  They offer a range of techniques that will undoubtedly impress and inspire you, from a better understanding of diseases to new drugs, new materials,  safer engineering components or solution to environmental problems.
Come and join Dr Thomas Sorensen from Diamond in the UK and Dr Paul Dumas from Soleil in France, who will take you on a journey from drug development using protein crystallography to imaging cancer cells using infrared micro spectroscopy. 
Because seeing is understanding...
