Event Name

UXSS2019. Ultrafast X-ray Summer School

Start Date 17th Jun 2019
End Date 21st Jun 2019

UXSS is an annual event jointly organized by the Center for
Free-Electron Laser Science (CFEL) in Hamburg and the Stanford PULSE
Institute. UXSS is intended to introduce students and postdocs to the
latest science that is enabled by novel X-ray Free Electron Lasers. The
program will be highly interdisciplinary, with topics ranging from
materials physics to structural biology. The list of confirmed speakers
can be found below.  There will also be a coursework exercise involving
a mock proposal for European XFEL, with the help of experienced mentors.


The lectures cover the following topics:

  • introduction to X-ray sources
  • atomic and molecular physics
  • condensed matter physics with X-rays
  • theory of X-ray matter interaction
  • structural biology
  • matter in extreme conditions
  • chemical dynamics
  • coherent diffractive imaging
  • inelastic X-ray scattering
