Nuclear Research with Photons of Eγ less than 15 MeV

Fri., Feb. 7, 2014 3:30 p.m. - Fri., Feb. 7, 2014 4:30 p.m.

Location: CL 232

The Canadian Light Source is a 2.9 GeV electron synchrotron with circulating currents of up to 500 mA. At this facility, we are proposing to build a beamline of laser photon- storage ring electron Compton scatter gamma rays. Several Canadian and non-Canadian scientists are interested in carrying out research of interest for nuclear physics, nuclear astrophysics, medical physics and other security related issues.

My talk will present a description of the technology of this facility and scientific merits of this tool for the proposed research activities. I will also present a brief description of the activities in the department with regard to training of the next generation of scientists and engineers in physics and engineering physics and links with researches of our faculty.

Speaker: Prof. Chary Rangacharyulu, Head, Department of Physics and Engineering Physics, University of Saskatchewan

Bio:

Ph.D. in Nuclear Physics, Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur, India. Post-doctoral work at Osaka University, Japan; Laval University, Quebec and Accelerator Lab, Saskatoon. On the faculty of the department of Physics and Engineering Physics, since 1983. Currently Professor and Head of the department. Graduated Ph.D.s and M.Sc. in these international collaborations, who have taken up jobs in academia and industry.

Specialization: Nuclear Physics, Particle Physics, Quantum mechanics, lately nuclear physics applications.

Works extensively at particle accelerators of various types in Japan, Germany, and Netherlands with collaborators from several countries such as Japan, Russia, Germany, Netherlands, USA, Vietnam and Canada. Also carries out research with SLOWPOKE reactor.
