Prof. Roy Beck Barkai, of the Condensed Matter Department in the School of Physics and Astronomy, has been appointed a member of the Israeli delegation on the Council of the Sesame Project, the Middle East synchrotron light source.

 

SESAME (Synchrotron-light for Experimental Science and Applications in the Middle East) is a "third-generation" synchrotron light source that was officially opened in Allan (Jordan) on 16 May 2017. It is the Middle East's first major international research centre.

 

SESAME will both:

  • Foster scientific and technological excellence in the Middle East and neighbouring countries (and prevent or reverse the brain drain) by enabling world-class scientific research in subjects ranging from biology, archaeology and medical sciences through basic properties of materials science, physics, chemistry, and life sciences; and 

  • Build scientific and cultural bridges between diverse societies, and contribute to a culture of peace through international cooperation in science.
