RA Government to participate in establishment of CANDLE international center

PanARMENIAN.Net - Today, the Armenian government approved the project on establishment of CANDLE international center based on synchrotron light emission facility. Given the importance of this project for the applied sciences and technologies development, the state will participate in this scientific project, covering 25% of expenses, the press service of the RA government informed PanARMENIAN.Net

Other states and international structures are invited to participate in the center's construction and operation. The RA Ministry of Education and Science will be responsible for the project's implementation. According to Prime Minister Tigran Sargsyan, the establishment of CANDLE international center is a good example of state's and private sector's support to initiatives of Armenian scientists.

The complex will provide with the opportunity to have over 40 modern testing laboratories, Director of CANDLE scientific and research institute, Doctor of Physical and Mathematical Sciences Vasili Tsakanov told a PanARMENIAN.Net reporter. "The project implementation will allow conducting world-class fundamental and applied researches in physics, chemistry, biology, medicine, ecology, microelectronics, pharmacology and material science in Armenia, as well as will serve as a driving force for the development of high technologies in the country," Vasili Tsakanov said.

CANDLE is a project of 3 gigaelectronvolts energy, third generation synchrotron light source. It was designed by Armenian scientists and was highly estimated by an international expert commission, as a world-class project and brilliant initiative for the development of science and technology in Armenia. CANDLE is ranked among the following projects on light emission source: SPEAR3 (USA), CLS (Canada), SOLEIL (France) and Diamond (England.) The demand for such sources is from 3-10 times higher than the available possibilities in the world.
