Jordan- First light for the pioneering SESAME light source
(MENAFN - Jordan News Agency) Amman, Nov. 25 (Petra)-- Scientists at the pioneering SESAME light source saw First Monochromatic Light through the XAFS/XRF (X-ray absorption fine structure/X-ray fluorescence) spectroscopy beamline, signaling the start of the laboratory's experimental program.
The beamline, SESAME's first to come on stream, delivers X-ray light that will be used to carry out research in areas ranging from solid state physics to environmental science and archaeology.
Among the subjects likely to be studied in early experiments are environmental pollution with a view to improving public health, as well as studies aimed at identifying new drugs for cancer therapy, and cultural heritage studies ranging from bio archeology – the study of our ancestors – to investigations of ancient manuscripts.
