Synchrotron-light for Experimental Science and Applications in the Middle East

The SESAME Project is constructing the Middle East's first major international research centre as a cooperative venture by the scientists and governments of the region, under the umbrella of UNESCO. SESAME is located in Allaan, Jordan (30 km from Amman and 30 km from the King Hussein/ Allenby Bridge crossing of the Jordan River). Jordan was selected as the site in a competition among seven countries from the region. The facility is expected to become operational in 2015.
