Building 50 Auditorium, LBNL
Berkeley, CA, USA

 Workshop Proceedings 

Advanced Registration:    July 1, 2003
Abstract Submission:        July 1, 2003
Hotel Reservation:          July 21, 2003

Workshop Chairs:

    John Arthur, SSRL, Stanford University


  Workshop Overview:

Energy-recovery linac (ERL) and x-ray free-electron laser (XFEL) synchrotron radiation sources will provide diffraction-limited or fully transversely coherent radiation in the hard x-ray regime, with at least two-orders-of- magnitude increase in average coherent flux over present- day sources.   This 2-day workshop will explore novel scientific applications of future coherent hard x-ray sources, including both applications that make use of dc source properties and applications that depend on pulsed sources.  Topics will include all aspects of a coherent experiment, from source and optics to experimental techniques, applications and analytical methods. 

The meeting will begin early Friday, August 22, and end late afternoon Saturday, August 23, 2003. The format will facilitate the maximum amount of discussion.  There will be sessions for invited talks and poster sessions for in-depth discussions.  

  Topics and Sessions:
  • Future coherent sources and beamlines
  • Coherence preserving and generating optics
  • Coherent diffuse scattering and speckle
  • Coherent crystallography on nanocrystallites
  • Phase contrast x-ray microscopy
