September 2012: Prof. Sham Elected RSC Fellow

We are pleased to announce that Professor TK Sham, Tier 1 Canada Research Chair in Synchrotron Radiation and Professor of Chemistry, has been elected Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada.  Read the story here.

"Founded in 1882, the Royal Society of Canada (RSC) comprises the Academies of Arts, Humanities and Sciences of Canada. Its mission is to recognize scholarly, research and artistic excellence, to advise governments and organizations, and to promote a culture of knowledge and innovation in Canada and with other national academies around the world.

For three decades, Prof. T.K. Sham has been a Canadian and international leader in the development and use of soft X-ray synchrotron techniques for the study of matter and has become internationally known for his unique studies of nanomaterials. He has developed three novel techniques: conductivity XAFS of liquids; x-ray excited optical luminescence (XEOL); and time-resolved XEOL (TRXEOL). The latter two have been applied to obtain unique structural and electronic information for a variety of technologically important materials."

Please join us in congratulating TK on this important recognition.
