Novel Trends in Synchrotron and FEL-Based Analysis. AVS International Symposium and Exhibition

Start Date 9th Nov 2014
End Date 14th Nov 2014
Description The advanced experimental techniques using ultrabright and tunable X-ray, VUV or IR synchrotron and free electron laser radiation are indispensable tools to investigate the properties of matter with unprecedented space, spectral and time resolution.  Tightly focused beams of high intensity and coherence are especially well suited for chemical, morphological and structural characterization of materials under operando conditions. The topical sessions will focus on some of the major challenges of our century -  engineering materials capable of transforming efficiently chemical energy and solar energy into electricity and fuel. Opportunities also exist with x-rays for tackling challenges associated  with developing high capacity energy storage devices. The recent achievements in studies of interfacial electrochemical processes and charge transfer phenomena will be reported with selected presentations illustrating the potentials of the instruments, operated at the large scale facilities, with emphasis on the latest developments. We solicit abstracts demonstrating the recent achievements using synchrotron and FEL-based analytical methods spanning from all types of XRF, scattering (including RIXS and CDI), spectroscopy (including XRPES and XES) and X-ray imaging and microspectroscopy (SPEM, XPEEM, SXTM, TXM).
