Singapore Scientists Conduct world’s First Remote X-ray Scattering Experiment (May 26, 2009) — Singapore School of Biological Science (SBS) of Nanyang Technological University will develop the world’s first remotely controlled Solution X-Ray Scattering (SAXS) experiment on 26th May.

ntuThe experiment will be initiated from Singapore at 4.10pm – 6pm in SBS and conducted at the German Electron Synchrotron, Hamburg, Germany.

This event will mark a milestone in how traditional SAXS experiments are conducted by allowing scientists to control and conduct their research without being actually present at the facility where the synchrotron is located.

Due to the massive size and complexity of the synchrotron, there are just 37 in the world today. Therefore the success of this unconventional first experiment will mean saving precious resources on travelling time and costs.
