The Academy of Sciences Malaysia has put forward a proposal for the establishment of an Open Science Consortia to tackle global challenges at a Capacity Building Workshop on 12 August 2018 during the the 12th APEC Policy Partnership in Science, Technology and Innovation (PPSTI) Meeting in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea.
The new economy is about knowledge intensiveness and enhanced innovation capacity, fuelled by the digital revolution and rapid technological advancement. A country needs to evolve to leverage on the new economy, by making collaborative networks a necessary platform on which it could survive.
Every year, the Academy of Sciences Malaysia welcomes a new batch of prolific and distinguished Malaysian cognoscenti into its stellar line-up of honourable ASM Fellows.
On 19 July 2018, the Academy welcomed a roster of 29 Fellows at the 2018 Induction Session for newly elected Fellows.
Basically, my assignment at CERN was divided into two sections. Determination of time differences between two hits in the same fiber and determination of a non-biased estimator for the efficiency of FACT fibers.
For my project, I was assigned to characterise Silicon Photomultipliers (SiPM), more specifically the Hamamatsu S13360-1350CS. This is the SiPM being used in the (Cosmic Ray Tagger) system that is built at CERN for the ICARUS experiment.
During my fourth week here, the first task in my first project was to make five circuit breakers for five MCP power supplies. During the sixth week, the second task was to assemble the connection and panels of five MCP power supplies boxes, since the power supplies only arrived on Friday of the fifth week.
