A new research facility for the Middle East

A new research facility for the Middle East
Description

Well-known accelerators, like the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, the European Laboratory for Particle Physics near Geneva, smash subatomic particles together to study their properties. But there is another group of accelerators where electrons don't collide, instead they are kept circulating through a ring-shaped vacuum tube, called a storage ring. While they are racing around this ring they produce intense radiation.

Results

SESAME, a new synchrotron light source, located in Jordan, allows scientists there to do research without having to travel abroad. This project stimulates research and interest in science in the Middle East, as well as the exchange of scientists between that area and other regions of the world.
