Professor Wing Commander Dr. Sarawut Sujitjorn, Chief Executive Officer of Synchrotron Light Research Institute (SLRI), and executives welcomed SLRI International Advisory Committee (IAC) coming for a meeting on 18-19 March 2019 at SLRI.


Announcement of FAST Teams' awardees to visit the facility at Siam Photon Source of Synchrotron Light Research Institute Thailand for a period of two (2) months to be completed before the end of Calendar Year 2018.

Please be informed that the call for FAST team application of the
upcoming year is now available on the LAAAMP website at https://laaamp.iucr.org/calls/jan-dec-2019.
The deadline for applications is 15 November 2018.


LAAAMP (Lightsources for Africa, the Americas, Asia and Middle East Project) is a joint Programme of the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP) and the International Union of Crystallography (IUCr), supported by the International Council for Science (ICSU) through its ICSU Grants Programme.

The ICSU Grants Programme is a competitive, peer-reviewed programme that supports innovative collaborative scientific initiatives of relevance to science and society. The programme seeks to facilitate active collaboration between Scientific Unions and other members of the ICSU community (for example ICSU Regional Offices, Interdisciplinary Bodies, Joint Initiatives, Networks etc) by addressing long-standing priorities for ICSU members in developing science education, outreach and public engagement activities, and to mobilise resources for international scientific collaboration.

ICSU has awarded the IUPAP and the IUCr a grant to enhance advanced light source (AdLS) and crystallography sciences in five targeted regions of the world: Africa, the Caribbean, Mexico, Middle East and Asia.  Part of that funding will be allocated to send FAculty-STudent (FAST) teams for a period of two (2) months to be completed before the end of Calendar Year 2018 to LAAAMP’s collaborating light sources.

Synchrotron Light Research Institute Thailand is one of LAAAMP's members and the chair and committee of SE Asia residents to grant this award.

Two (2) FAST Teams have been awarded to visit the facility at Siam Photon Source of Synchrotron Light Research Institute Thailand:

FAST team: Asst. Prof. Dr. Apichart Atipairin & Mr. Nuttapon Songnaka (Walailak University, Thailand)
Field of Research: Protein crystallography

Research | Development


Synchrotron light is produced using a particle accelerator “Synchrotron Light Source”, a main infrastructure for science and technology development. The light is applied for in-depth studies of both atomic and molecular structures, and also for solving many scientific problems. Therefore, several users have sent proposals to Synchrotron Light Research Institute (Public Organization), SLRI, to acquire the use of synchrotron light. Radiation safety is then considered by SLRI the first and foremost important issue.
