    KOLKATA: Bengal is set for a big leap in cutting-edge scientific technology — one that could transform the state into a centre for futuristic research. A high energy, third generation synchrotron source, only the fifth such in the world, will be set up on a new campus of the Saha Institute of Nuclear Physics (SINP).

    It will bring an investment of at least `6,000 crore to the state — almost twice that of the Tata Nano project in Singur, say sources.

    The synchrotron will aid ahead-of-its-time research on nanotechnology and biological and material studies, with a wide range of applications from the manufacturing industry and engineering to basic sciences and medicine.

    "Just four such synchrotrones now exist in the US, France, Japan and Germany. Once we have the facility, India will step into the big league of scientific research. It is going to be India's CERN," said Milan Kumar Sanyal, director of SINP, referring to the world's largest particle physics laboratory in Switzerland where the Big Bang experiment is being carried out. A team of scientists has been formed to supervise the setting up of the synchrotron facility that might take 12 years to turn fully functional. It will require 150 acres of land.
