Synchrotron teams up with Sweden

The Canadian Light Source (CLS) synchrotron, located at the U of S, is strengthening ties with the synchrotron in Sweden as it continues to advance science and innovation in Canada.

Governor General David Johnston and His Majesty King Carl XVI Gustaf, King of Sweden, presided over the signing of a memorandum of understanding between the Canadian and Swedish national synchrotron light sources.

MAX IV Laboratory, located in Lund, Sweden operates synchrotron facilities with broad scientific programs, and shares scientific and technical goals similar to that of the CLS.

“We are thrilled to be collaborating with our colleagues in Sweden to exchange our expertise and ensure that the Canadian and Swedish people benefit from our mutual advancements and discoveries,” said Rob Lamb, CEO of the CLS.

MAX IV and CLS will collaborate closely on the development of technologies that will enhance the performance of their user facilities, and increase interactions and cooperation between the light source communities of Sweden and Canada.
