Synchrotron Radiation Applications to ASEAN

Synchrotron Radiation Applications to ASEAN

Department of Physics, Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember and Synchrotron Light Research Institute (SLRI) Thailand organized a seminar entitled “Synchrotron Radiation Applications to ASEAN”. The seminar was held in Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember on 27th of September 2017. Three invited speakers  gave presentations related synchrotron light source facilities at SLRI. They are Dr. Siriwat Soontaranon, Dr. Wanwisa Limphirat and Dr. Chanan Euaruksakul.

Dr. Siriwat Soontaranon gave an introduction on synchrotron light source at SLRI and Small Angle X-ray Scattering (SAXS). SAXS is used to investigate nano structure of material such as analysis particle size and size distribution, percent crystallinity, starch lamellar nano structure and so on. Dr. Wanwisa Limphirat explained others facilities including X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS), Micro X-ray Fluorescence Spectroscopy/Imaging (XRF) and Infrared Spectroscopy and Imaging (IR). In the last session, Dr. Chanan Euaruksakul described on what Photoemission Electron Spectroscopy (PES) and Microscopy (PEEM) are and their functions to study materials.

 

                       

 

SLRI offers foreigner users to apply a proposal to use those facilities. For more detail on the proposal applications and schedule can be found in the following webpage http://www.slri.or.th/en/

Guest Lecture by Dr. Isao Watanabe from RIKEN Nishina Center Japan

Guest Lecture by Dr. Isao Watanabe from RIKEN Nishina Center Japan

“The Muon Science: An introduction to a new research field for materials”

On Tuesday, 23rd of January 2018, advanced materials research group again held a guest lecture inviting Dr. Isao Watanabe from Advanced Meson Science Laboratory, RIKEN Nishina Center, Japan. The lecture was on the introduction of the muon science to study materials.

Muon is unstable elementary particle discovered in 1936 by Carl D. Anderson and Seth Neddermeyer as the secondary radiation from cosmic rays. It is simply a “heavy electron” with the mass of about 200 times heavier than that of the electron and also a “light proton” with the mass of about 1/9 of the proton. The muon carries the half spin and the large gyromagnetic ratio (2π × 13.55 kHz/G) which therefore acts as a very sensitive probe to study local magnetic fields. The muon spin polarizes after its production, and this self-spin-polarization can allow us to carry out experiments even in the zero-field condition. Muon’s spin and charge are exquisitely sensitive as a local magnetic probes of matter. A technique based on these unique properties of the muon is named as the μSR technique. μSR is an abbreviation of muon-spin rotation/relaxation/resonance. Low energy muons which are required for  μSR are produced at intermediate energy particle accelerator facility. There are currently five facilities around the world producing muon beams: TRIUMF in Canada, ISIS in the UK, PSI in Switzerland and JPARC in Japan. μSR technique provides an excellent method to study materials in complement to the other experimental techniques.

Events Summaries:

The 8th AONSA Neutron School was held at BARC, Mumbai, India during November 15-19, 2016. The School was organized by Mumbai in association with the Board of Research in Nuclear Sciences (BRNS), Department of Atomic Energy, Government of India, the Neutron Scattering Society of India, the AONSA, andthe International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Vienna. The school was attended by 42 students from the Asia-Oceania region: Malaysia (3), Indonesia (5), Korea(3), Japan (2),Bangladesh (1),Vietnam (1), and India (27). The travel expenses of 10 students from developing countries were supported by IAEA (7) and AONSA (3).The lectures were delivered by 19 experts from the Asia-Oceania region (Japan: 2, Australia: 2, Korea: 2, Taiwan: 1, and Indian: 12).

The 17th AONSA Executive Committee Meeting was held on Friday November 18, 2016, at BARC in Mumbai, India. Twenty of twelve Executive Committee (EC) members and eight observers representing neutron facilities in the Asia-Oceania region. The meeting was held to coincide with the 8th AONSA Neutron School, being held at BARC. Indonesian Neutron Scattering Society (INSS) started its activities in the year of 2016 by participating in the AONSA Executive Committee (EC) Meeting, on 31 May 2016, in Dongguan City, China, represented by Darminto (ITS, a board member of INSS). In the AONSA second meeting held in Mumbai India, which was coincided with the running of the Neutron School, 15-19 November 2016. Evvy Kartini (BATAN, President of INSS) and Darminto have taken part in facilities director (FD) and EC Meeting. Please click here for details. Meanwhile, 5 participants (4 of BATAN, and 1 of ITS) have joined the Neutron School.

The 12th Asia-Oceania Neutron Facility Directors Meeting (AONFDM) was held on November 17th, 2016 at the Hotel Tunga, Mumbai, India.

The International Conference on Neutron Scattering (ICNS2017) to be held in Korea in July 2017, and the 3rd Asia-Oceania Conference on Neutron Scattering (AOCNS-2019) to be held in Taiwan in November 2019.

The 16th AONSA Executive Committee Meeting was held on Tuesday May 31, 2016, at the China Spallation Neutron Source (CSNS) in Dongguan, China. Eighteen participants came to Dongguan for the meeting, consisting of nine Executive Committee (EC) members and nine observers representing neutron facilities in the Asia-Oceania region. In this meeting, it was the first EC meeting to include the Indonesian Neutron Scattering Society (INSS) as a formal member of AONSA. In welcoming participants to the meeting, AONSA President Sung-Min Choi thanked the organisers in Dongguan, and extended a particular welcome to Darminto, representing INSS.

In this meeting, participants discussed briefly the preparations for  the AONSA Young Research Fellowship in 2017, the 8th AONSA school to be held in India in November 2016, the International Conference on Neutron Scattering (ICNS2017) to be held in Korea in July 2017, and the 3rd Asia-Oceania Conference on Neutron Scattering (AOCNS-2019) to be held in Taiwanin November 2019.
