 The first summer school of Soochow University-Western University centre for synchrotron radiation research took place on the Dushu Lake campus of Soochow University on July 22 -24, 2013. Prof.T.K. Sham of Western University, Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada, and Director of the Centre, addressed the opening remarks. Prof. Xuhui Sun, Associate Dean of College of Nano Science & Technology of Soochow University hosted the meeting. More than 150 young researchers from all over the nation participated in this event.

Six experts in synchrotron research were invited as lecturers from both domestic and international communities,including Prof. T.K. Sham from Western University, Canada, Prof. Jinghua Guo from Advanced Light Source, Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, USA, Prof. Shiqiang Wei from University of Science and Technology of China, Dr. Yuhui Dong from Institute of High Energy Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Prof. Yang Song from Western University, Canada and Prof. Keith Gilmore from Soochow University, China. Multi-disciplinary lectures involving the fundamental principles,the development and application of synchrotron radiation on materials science, energy and sustainability, study of nanomaterials growth mechanisms, biochemistry and biology,as well as high pressure science and technology were given;ample examples addressing the frontier sciences, recent advances, and practical applications were provided.This summer school provides an excellent platform for the exchange and collaboration between students and researchers from different fields who are interested in synchrotron radiation, especially the basic theories, the latest developments, experimental techniques, and data analysis methods in order to take the advantage of full power of synchrotron radiation technology. During the discussion sessions, many students raised excellent questions, which were addressed patiently by the expert lecturers in great details.

 

The success of this summer school greatly promoted the synchrotron science and technology for domestic young researchers by providing the latest development and application of this technology, extending their horizons and by offering a new alternative tool for their future research. Moreover, such summer school also, provides excellent opportunities for China’s development of various synchrotron techniques towards the international level.

 

This event was sponsored by Soochow University and co-organized by the Soochow University-Western University Centre for Synchrotron Radiation Research and Institute of Function Nano & Soft Materials, Soochow University.
