ERC grant for ESRF visiting scientist
Beatrice Ruta, a visiting scientist at the ESRF, has been awarded a 1.5M grant from the European Research Council. Ruta s research will focus on using coherent X-rays to elucidate the complex atomic motion of glasses, using X-ray photon correlation spectroscopy on beamline ID10.
Gianluca Iori (left), beamline scientist in charge of coordinating the construction of the new tomography beamline at the SESAME synchrotron in Jordan, was welcomed to the ESRF for a three-week training session as part of BEATS (beamline for tomography at SESAME), a European Horizon2020 project coordinated by the ESRF.
ESRF welcomes BEATS scientist
ESRF welcomes new ASD director
The ESRF has welcomed the first students within the new Horizon2020 Marie Skłodowska- Curie COFUND doctoral programme, InnovaXN. They will each be working for three years on an innovative project in collaboration with industrial and academic partners, benefiting from the expertise of scientists using X-rays (ESRF) and neutrons (ILL) to characterise matter, driven by industrial challenges.
On 1 November, Prof. Qing Qin started his five-year term as the director of the ESRF s Accelerator & Source Division. As a well-known accelerator physicist and a full- time professor at Peking University and at the Institute of High Energy Physics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Qin has also served on CERN s Machine Advisory Committee (MAC) since 2013.
ESRF and UCL scientists were awarded a $1M Chan Zuckerberg Initiative grant for a human organ imaging project that will transform X-ray tomography technology. Being able to image whole human bodies at the cellular level will provide new insight into health and disease.
The Battery Interface Genome Materials Acceleration Platform (BIG-MAP) project, part of the Horizon2020 initiative, Battery 2030+, was launched. Coordinated by the Danish Technical University, the project is a collaboration between more than 30 companies, universities and research facilities such as the ESRF that aims to turbocharge battery innovation through the comprehensive, AI-led analysis of research outcomes.
