Oct 2007
The government of India, the Canadian Light Source (CLS) and the University of Saskatchewan recently signed an agreement to promote cooperation between Indian and Canadian researchers in synchrotron science. The letter of intent was signed at the Indian High Commission by S.K. Sikka, scientific secretary to India's principal scientific adviser; CLS Executive Director William Thomlinson; and University of Saskatchewan President Peter MacKinnon. It opens the way to explore joint projects between Indian and Canadian researchers in synchrotron science, including materials research, earth and environmental sciences, and biomedical and life sciences, the university said in a statement. It is envisioned that Indian researchers may travel to the CLS both as customers and to learn about the operation and design of experimental equipment at Canada's synchrotron, it said. India is increasing its investment in synchrotron science, including the INDUS-2 synchrotron at the Raja Ramana Centre for Advanced Technology. The Canadian Light Source is Canada's national center for synchrotron research. Located at the University of Saskatchewan campus in Saskatoon, the CLS is a tool for academic and industrial research in areas including environmental science, natural resources and energy, health and life sciences, and information and communications technology.


GLOSSARY
photonics
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
