As a result of an agreement recently signed by ICTP director Miguel Virasoro and Carlo Rizzuto, chairman of Sincrotrone Trieste scpa, scientists from the developing world will have access to a new beamline at the Elettra synchrotron light source, located in Trieste's Area Science Park. The beamline, called XAFS (an acronym for X-Ray Absorption Fine Structure), can analyze the structure of new materials. ICTP will invest US$1.5 million for the beamline, which is expected to be ready by the middle of this year. About 60 developing world researchers will be able to use XAFS as well as other Elettra beamlines for a total of 1500 hours per year.
