Iranian Scientists Active in SESAME Project

Iran's ambassador to Jordan visited the Synchrotron-Light for Experimental Science and Applications in the Middle East Laboratory (SESAME), indicating the country's intention to intensify cooperation with the UNESCO-backed research lab.
Mojtaba Ferdosipour was accompanied on his visit by Abdollahnejad, counsellor for economic affairs at the foreign mission, Mehr News Agency reported.
During his tour of the lab, he was shown the 800 MeV booster synchrotron commissioned in September 2014, which is the highest energy accelerator in the Middle East.
Ferdosipour said Iranian scientists and engineers have always played an active part in the center’s activities.
For a number of years, two of its engineers, namely Arash Kaftoosian and Sedat Varnasseri, headed SESAME’s Radio Frequency Group and its Power Supply and Diagnostics Group respectively.
Since August 2015, Hossein Ali Khosroabadi has been working as SESAME’s Beamline Optics Scientist.
For seven months, Iran backed Ehsan Yousefi's cooperation with CERN (European Organization for Nuclear Research) to help build the magnetic system for SESAME’s storage ring.
An Iranian woman scientist, Fatemeh Elmi from the University of Mazandaran, was one of the first scientists to use the Fourier transform infrared spectrometer installed at SESAME in the summer of 2014 to jumpstart research.
The spectrometer will be adapted to SESAME’s "day-one" infrared beamline.
Elmi is working on a joint study on breast cancer.
The center is currently run by Khaled Toukan and is staffed by 35 people.
