The Success of 3rd International Workshop

Date:2015-08-02      Views:

The 3rd International Workshop of Soochow University-Western University Centre for Synchrotron Radiation Research (SWC) was took place in Western University, on Jul 16, 2015.

 

This workshop was co-organized by Profs. Kim Baines and Yang Song of Western University, and Prof. Xuhui Sun of Soochow University.  Over 60 delegates attended the workshop, including faculties and students from Soochow University, Western University, as well as synchrotron scientists from Advanced Light Source (US), Advanced Photon Source (US) and Canadian Light Source.

 

Dr. John Capone, Western Vice President (Research) provided welcome remarks at the beginning of the workshop, which was hosted by Prof. T.K. Sham, Director of the Centre.

 

The workshop features four sessions with a total of 15 oral presentations and three focused themes, i.e., energies materials and devices, characterization of macro-molecules and biological systems, and synchrotron capabilities that enabled these themes. Specifically, novel energy materials in the form of nanoparticles, composites, thin films, and other nanostructures, and their applications in lithium batteries, photovoltaics, solar cells, catalysis for energy conversion as well as in other energy devices characterized using synchrotron techniques were extensively discussed. In addition, the application of synchrotron radiation in solving complicated structures and thus in understanding the function of large biological systems were also highlighted.

 

The success of this workshop greatly strengthens the connection between members in both sides and improves the Center’s influence in the area of synchrotron radiation research.
