Event Details

  • Speaker(s): Mark Sutton
  • Date:
  • Time: 4:00 p.m.
  • Location: Science Complex, Atrium Wing, Rm. 1511

Once again the physics news is abuzz about x-ray sources. In this talk I will discuss:

-A little history of synchrotron facilities and where they are going?
-What's new at the Canadian Light Source.
-Next generation sources and x-ray lasers.
-Why now is a great time to take advantage of these new sources, in other words, why you should contemplate graduate school in x-ray scattering using synchrotrons.
-A little bit on my own research.
