Event Name

Taiwan National Synchrotron Radiation Research Center Annual Users' Meeting and 20th Anniversary of Operation

Start Date 4th Sep 2014
End Date 5th Sep 2014
National Synchrotron Radiation Research Center and User Executive Committee sincerely invite you to participate in and present your recent research results at Annual Users' Meeting and 20th Anniversary of Operation on September 4 - 5, 2013. 

The meeting will begin on September 4 with sessions covering the current status reports and future plans regarding NSRRC’s light source & beamlines. After that, several notable users from different fields will present their cutting-edge research. In the afternoon, seven interest groups and the Users’ Town Meeting, hosted by the User Executive Committee (UEC), will take place sequentially. During the Users’ Town Meeting, users can communicate and discuss issues related to the experiments, user service and future development at NSRRC with Director Chang. In addition, this year is the 20th anniversary of operation. All the attendees are invited to join the celebration for the anniversary with us. 

On September 5, two workshops will be held simultaneously. Oral presentations for the poster contest will be held and classified into different groups according to their research fields. Each Poster Contest group will have a first prize winner and he/she will be presented with the “Glory of Taiwan” award in the subsequent dinner banquet and the awards ceremony. 

Workshop I: Unconventional Photoelectron Spectroscopy: NAP-XPS and HAXPES 

The aim of the workshop is to bring experts to discuss the recent development of unconventional x-ray photoelectron spectroscopies (XPS) either operated with sample kept at near ambient pressure (NAP) or performed with hard x-ray (HAX) photons. These two powerful variants of XPS make possible the investigation of in-situ catalysis phenomenon and interfacial electronic structure of semiconductor heterojunction, respectively. The construction of these two facilities has been incorporated into TPS phase II project. 

Workshop II: Applications of Synchrotron Radiation to Structural Biology. 

The aim of this workshop is to provide great opportunities and new applications for the studies of structural biology by utilizing and integrating the current NSRRC facilities toward future development. During the workshop, distinguished scientists and scholars will present their recent research and development using protein crystallography (PX), X-ray small angle scattering (XSAS), circular dichroism (CD) spectroscopy, extended X-ray absorption fine structure (EXAFS) and X-ray fluorescence (XRF) Microscopy.
