"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.
