Thailand beefs up physics know-how, linked up with European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERNS)

 

Thailand’s most powerful newspaper, Thai Rath, reports several Thai units and the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERNS) have linked up to help Thailand life its study of advance physics, with the setting up and running of ASEAN’s first Worldwide LHG Computer Grid (WLCG) arm in Thailand. Thai Rath reports units involved are the Ministry of Science, the Thai science developmental agancy, NSTDA, Chulalongkorn University and Suranaree Tech University. As part of the agreement, Thailand will send teachers and students to study physics at CERNS and CERNS, which also study Synchrotron, will also help Thailand’s Synchrotron Center. Synchrotron is a safe radiation that has many food and related application. The agreement between CERNS and Thailand was pushed by a Thai princess. CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, physicists and engineers are probing the fundamental structure of the universe. They use the world’s largest and most complex scientific instruments to study the basic constituents of matter – the fundamental particles. The particles are made to collide together at close to the speed of light. The process gives the physicists clues about how the particles interact, and provides insights into the fundamental laws of nature. The instruments used at CERN are purpose-built particle accelerators and detectors. Accelerators boost beams of particles to high energies before the beams are made to collide with each other or with stationary targets. Detectors observe and record the results of these collisions. Founded in 1954, the CERN laboratory sits astride the Franco-Swiss border near Geneva. It was one of Europe’s first joint ventures and now has 20 member states.
