Celebrating the International Year of Light 2015

Registrations are now open for the upcoming 'An Advanced Introduction to Synchrotron Light' public lecture at Australian Synchrotron on Monday, 29 June 2015. This FREE public event will detail how researchers use synchrotron light to find solutions to research problems.

The Australian Synchrotron creates a light one million times brighter than the sun. The powerful light is used to 'see the invisible': the structure, composition and behaviour of natural and fabricated materials at a level of detail not possible in conventional laboratories. Researchers come to use the synchrotron in many areas of study including health, industry, and agriculture.

If you've always wanted to know not just the 'what', but also the 'why' and 'how' of synchrotron science, this event is for you!

Come along and find out:

  • What the synchrotron light tells researchers about their material that other techniques can't

  • Why the light is so special

  • And how one light can source help studies in so many diverse areas

    This public lecture will also explore some recent projects undertaken at the Australian Synchrotron and show how scientists used synchrotron light to find the answers they were seeking. In this International Year of Light, you'll also receive an in-depth look at just how synchrotron light helps researchers improve our health and wellbeing, and links with Australian industry.

    Please note this event has advanced content for a general audience, and assumes a reasonable knowledge of high school level science in areas such as physics, biology and chemistry. There will be no tour, only a public lecture.

    The 'An Advanced Introduction to Synchrotron Light' public lecture will be held from 2:00pm to 3.30pm on Monday, 29 June 2015.

    The Australian Synchrotron is located at 800 Blackburn Road, Clayton 3168.

    If you are interested in attending, please visit the EventBrite to secure your place.

    As seats are limited early bookings are advised.
