Title : Synchrotron X-ray spectroscopies for catalysis


ynchrotron radiation source is an accelerator-based light source with extremely high brightness and some very unique properties. It enables the researches and applications which are not possible in the regular laboratories. The X-ray spectroscopy techniques available at the synchrotron facilities provide a set of powerful tools for catalysis analysis. This presentation will give an overview of these techniques. As an example of research facilities, Canadian Light Source will be introduced briefly. A few detailed research examples will be presented to show the application in catalysis analysis.


Dr. Feng is currently a senior scientist and beamline responsible at the Canadian Light Source (CLS) since 2005. He received his PhD degree in atomic and molecular physics in 1993. Before joining CLS, he worked as an assistant (1993) and associate professor (1995) in University of Science and Technology of China; research associate (1997) in University of British Columbia; and staff scientist (2002) in Alberta Synchrotron Institute. He has extensive experience in electron and X-ray spectroscopy and microscopy, and has published ~100 research articles in SCI (EI) journals.
