The site visit hosted by the Deputy Minister of Science and Technology (MOST), Prof. Minn-Tsong Lin, began with welcome remarks from the NSRRC Director, Dr. Guo-Huei Luo, followed by an overview on NSRRC's operation and industrial application performance, given by Dr. Chun-Jung Chen and Dr. Bor-Yuan Shew, respectively. The delegation then went on a facility tour that showcased the accelerator model of the Taiwan Photon Source (TPS) and several TPS beamlines, including Protein Microcrystallography (TPS 05A), BioSAXS (TPS 13A), Coherent X-ray Scattering (TPS 25A), Soft X-ray Scattering (TPS 41A), and Taiwan-Germany collaborated Submicron Soft X-ray Spectroscopy (TPS 45A).

It was a great opportunity for the legislators, who oversee the national budget, to witness the fruitful outcomes resulting from government's budget support to the NSRRC. In the past decades, the NSRRC's advanced synchrotron facilities, have significantly facilitated fundamental scientific research, technology developments and industry applications, covering semiconductor, material analysis, biopharmaceutical, nano manufacturing. green energy, etc. As one of the brightest light sources in the world, NSRRC, with its pioneering capabilities, will continue to develop cutting edge technologies and to solve scientific challenges, keeping Taiwan at the forefront of global scientific research.
