Company Profile


The Canadian Light Source (CLS) is Canada’s national synchrotron research facility, where intense beams of light are generated to probe the nature and structure of matter.

The CLS is committed to being a world-leading centre of excellence in synchrotron science and its applications by working with the scientific community and industry to promote the use of synchrotron light, promoting industrial partnerships and innovation, and engaging in scientific and educational outreach.

From mining, biotechnology and pharmaceuticals, the environment and health, to agriculture, nanotechnology, manufacturing and oil and gas, synchrotron science is a unique and invaluable tool for industrial research and development.

Service Name:
Synchrotron analytical research services- life sciences, protein crystallography, and spectroscopy, environment, advanced materials, micro & nano-tech
A synchrotron is a source of brilliant light used by scientists to view the microstructure of materials. This extremely bright light is produced by using powerful magnets and radio frequency waves to accelerate electrons to nearly the speed of light. Infrared, ultraviolet and X-ray light is shone down beamlines to endstations (small laboratories) where scientists can select different parts of the spectrum to “see” the microscopic nature of matter, right down to the level of the atom.

Synchrotrons are used to probe the structure of matter and analyze a host of physical, chemical, geological and biological processes. Information obtained by scientists can be used to help design new drugs, develop advanced materials for aerospace and automobile, examine the structure of surfaces in order to develop more effective motor oils, build more powerful computer chips, develop new materials for safer medical implants, nano materials and devices for electronics, health and environment, and help clean-up mining wastes, to name just a few applications.

This first-in-Canada 2.9 GeV (gigaelectron volt) synchrotron light source is fully competitive with the best available internationally and will attract industrial and academic researchers from coast to coast and around the world.
