This Beam is Lit! - Livestream
Date and Time
The Guelph Physics live stream Winter 2022 series continues Wednesday, February 16th at 7:00 pm EST with a chat about the Canadian Light Source.
Our guests are Kathryn Janzen and Guelph Physics alum Dr. Al Rahemtulla.
Located in Saskatoon, the Canadian Light Source (CLS) produces the brightest light in Canadian science, millions of times brighter than even the sun! Scientists from around the world use this infra-red, ultraviolet and X-ray light via beamlines to experimental stations where scientists can select different parts of the spectrum to "see" the microscopic nature of matter, right down to the level of the atom.
Graduating with his PhD in 2020, Dr. Al Rahemtulla is now an Associate Scientist with the Brockhouse X-ray Diffraction and Scattering beamline at the CLS. Al’s research has intertwined with the commissioning of the Brockhouse sector improving the capabilities of the beamline. His thesis focused on interpreting local structure of amorphous solids measured through high-resolution pair distribution function measurements.
Kathryn Janzen works for the CLS as the User Experience Coordinator and as an Associate Scientist for their Canadian Macromolecular Crystallography Facility (CMCF) beamlines. She helps researchers across Canada to use the synchrotron light of the CLS for detailed analyses of their samples. Originally from small-town Saskatchewan, she has a Masters in Physics from the University of Regina and currently resides in Saskatoon with her young family.
As always, we will have a live Q&A where we will endeavour to answer your questions in real time!
Please join us for this unique opportunity to chat with scientists from one of Canada’s leading research facilities! If you are an undergraduate or graduate student looking for an interesting and compelling career, this will be the stream for you!
Hosted by Orbax and streamed live to our YouTube channel and to Facebook @GuelphPhysics
