Advanced X-ray Methods and Instrumentation for LCLS-II-HE Science

to be held at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory on Oct. 16-17, 2018

Registration and further workshop details (including information about LCLS-II-HE) are now available on the workshop website:

The High Energy upgrade to the current LCLS-II project (LCLS-II-HE) will provide coherent hard X-ray pulses at ~1 Å at repetition rates up to 1 MHz, with potential extension to 20 keV. Plans for LCLS-II-HE are progressing quickly. The conceptual design for the upgrade is now under review by DOE, and we hope to achieve CD-1 approval soon.

The specific purpose of this workshop is to further engage the science community in helping to identify the most compelling X-ray methods and instrumentation that will exploit the unique capabilities of LCLS-II-HE for the greatest scientific impact. The outcome from this workshop will help guide planning for new instruments for LCLS-II-HE.

In addition to the main plenary session, all participants are encouraged to present and discuss their ideas in the breakout sessions:

  •          AMO Physics, Gas-phase Chemistry & Attosecond Science
  •          Condensed Phase Chemistry
  •          Structural Biology
  •          Materials Physics
  •          Quantum Materials

We look forward to your participation in the workshop in Oct.
