Resonant Elastic X-ray Scattering 2011

The proceedings of the REXS 2011 conference are now available as open access articles in European Physical Journal Special Topics 208.

The REXS 2011 conference is now over ! We hope you had a great time in Aussois!

The first conference dedicated to Anomalous or Resonant X-ray Scattering took place in Madrid in 1974, followed in 1992 by Malente conference (Hamburg, Germany, published as: ”Resonant Anomalous X-Ray Scattering“, by G. Materlik, C.J. Sparks & K. Fischer,North-Holland,1994). The aim was to bring together scientists using this novel technique specific to synchrotron radiation in a variety of fields.

20 years or so later, scientists of third generation synchrotrons intensively use this technique that opened to a broad range of applications such as magnetism and nanoscience. A need emerges of a school / conference with published synthesis that would set a similar milestone in condensed matter research. In order to favor scientific exchanges, we restrict the topics to elastic resonant scattering in condensed matter.

Aim of the conference: bring together young and experienced scientists from different fields in condensed matter to share their experience on the application of Elastic Anomalous/Resonant Small, or/and Wide Angle Scattering (including diffraction and reflectivity).

The conference will cover the following topics:
  • Fundamentals of elastic resonant scattering
  • Electronic correlations
  • Magnetism
  • Nanostructures
  • Soft condensed matter, polymers and glasses
  • Materials science and chemistry
  • Instrumentation
Location Aussois
