In everyday life individuals learn by ‘seeing’ things using light; the same is true in science. The extraordinary power of synchrotron light has made it an essential tool for studying matter on scales ranging from biological cells to atoms. This lecture discusses the idea of SESAME, an international institute in the Middle East built on the successful model of CERN, in fields like archaeology, biology, chemistry, environmental science, geology, medicine, and physics.
Speakers Rolf Heuer, President of the German Physical Society (DPG); Former Director-General of the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN), Individuals
Hosted by NYU Abu Dhabi Institute
