BEATS, the BEAmline for Tomography at SESAME is an H2020 European project to build a beamline for tomography at the SESAME synchrotron in Jordan. BEATS involves leading research facilities in the Middle East (SESAME and the Cyprus Institute), and European synchrotron radiation facilities ALBA-CELLS (Spain), DESY (Germany), the ESRF (France), Elettra (Italy), INFN (Italy), PSI (Switzerland) and SOLARIS (Poland).
SESAME is glad to announce the first edition of the "BEATS X-ray tomography lectures & training course" that will be held at SESAME on June 6-7, 2023. The lectures, which will take place on 6 June, will be transmitted online and may therefore be followed by a large number of participants. They will be followed on 7 June, by a hands-on, in-person training session at the beamline in SESAME, that will be limited to ten participants.
Both target prospective users of the BEATS beamline and provide a theoretical and experimental knowledge base in Synchrotron Radiation X-ray Tomography. Please visit this page for more information.
If you plan to use the BEATS beamline, you are encouraged to apply to take part in the event. The ten successful applicants selected to participate in the hands-on, in-person training at SESAME will have their travel and lodging costs at SESAME's Guest House covered. The deadline for applications is April 30, 2023.
