Bringing Light to STEM Research

Event feature image

These webinars are designed for teachers who have a passion for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) and who are interested in learning more about student-centered, inquiry-based experiences that prepare their students for success in STEM research and careers! Teachers will hear from Canadian Light Source (CLS) experts on how synchrotron research can help support student development in research skills, teamwork, communicating science, learning new perspectives, and more.

What is a Synchrotron?

A synchrotron is a source of brilliant light that scientists can use to gather information about the structural and chemical properties of materials at the molecular level. A synchrotron produces light by using radio frequency waves and powerful electromagnets to accelerate electrons to nearly the speed of light. Different spectra of light, such as Infrared, Ultraviolet, and X-rays, are directed down beamlines where researchers choose the desired wavelength to study their samples. Researchers observe the interaction between the light and matter in their sample at the end stations (small laboratories). The information obtained can be used to help design new drugs, build more efficient and cleaner batteries, help remediate soil from mines, and help innovate fertilizers and crop varieties, to name just a few applications. The Canadian Light Source is Canada’s only synchrotron and is located in Saskatoon, SK.
