Virtual Tour of Synchrotron

You are now able to take a virtual tour of the Canadian Light Source (CLS) from the comfort and safety of your home. You’ll get a behind-the-scenes look at Canada’s only synchrotron research facility, which speeds up electrons to produce light brighter than even the sun. One of the largest science projects in our country’s history, the CLS annually hosts more than 1,000 scientists from around the world who use this light to conduct ground-breaking research. On the tour, you’ll get to see the machinery that produces Canada’s brightest light, the laboratories where scientists make discoveries, and learn more about how synchrotron research is helping to improve the lives of Canadians.  https://files.https://www.lightsource.ca/tours


Virtual EPICS Collaboration Meeting; June 01 -04

The Candian Light Source (CLS also known as the Synchrotron) will be hosting a virtual conference on EPICS (Experimental Physics and Industrial Control System). EPICS is a free Open-Source framework for distributed control systems which is used by scientific facilities and industries around the world. It is useful for systems ranging from one device to thousands of devices. Its abilities range from low-level communication through integration to user interfaces. EPICS is very useful for integrating systems, equipment, and instruments from differing vendors using differing protocols (a common problem).  

Topics and sessions will range from introductory to advanced. This is an excellent opportunity to learn more about EPICS or other aspects of large control systems. (Free) Registration: https://indico.lightsource.ca/event/2/.  


Past Events:

Python Workshop - Wednesday, February 24, From 19:00 to 20.30

Python has become one of the world's most popular programming languages. Pythos is powerful, flexible, and extremely easy to learn. These are among the reasons it has become a favorite across the spectrum, from computer scientists and data analysts to programming neophytes looking for a simple tool to solve a problem.  

In this workshop, Michael Bree, a Control Systems Analyst at the Canadian Light Source, will present a brief overview of Python. Then a typical  "real world" example will be tackled. Participants will have the opportunity to try their hand a writing some Python code. No programming experience is required. For registration, email to events@saskatoonengineers.com. Details of the event will follow.

Energy Efficiency: Key Tool in GHG Emissions Reduction - 9:00 PM on April 27, 2021

The Government of Canada has set a target to reduce greenhouse gas emission by 30% below 2005 levels by 2030. Energy efficiency is generally recognized as the logical first step in achieving this target. While it is not the only tool, it is however the quickest, cheapest and easiest means in moving the needle towards this target. This presentation gives a synopsis of how energy efficiency can be achieved in residential, commercial and industrial facilities. It also looks at opportunities for increasing skills and knowledge in this vital subject matter. Mishack Okpara is an Electrical Engineering Professional with over 15 years experience. He is registered with APEGS as an Engineer-In-Training and recently became a Certified Energy Manager. For Zoom link, click here
