Workshop on the instrumentation at the European X-ray Free Electron Laser (XFEL) facility
(Nanowerk News) From October 29-31, 2008, the "International workshop on the science with and the instrumentation for Small Quantum Systems at the European XFEL" will take place in Aarhus, Denmark.
The study of Small Quantum Systems (SQS) of atomic, molecular, cluster, or crystalline character in gas phase experiments was one of the prioritized areas of science for the upcoming European XFEL facility as described in the Technical Design Report and includes studies of extremely dilute systems, of particles in traps, of non-linear processes using one- and two-colour techniques and of ultrafast processes.
The workshop will bring together scientists interested in experiments using the SQS instrumentation at the European XFEL facility both to review the science planned with this instrumentation, to discuss the requirements to the X-ray FEL beam delivery, and to initiate activities and collaborations on instrumentation and facilities needed at its photon endstations.
The workshop is co-funded by the European Commission through the Pre-XFEL project. This will allow free of charge access to the workshop. It is hosted and supported by the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Aarhus (see photo). Photo Karen Fleng.
