First Announcement

Workshop on Capabilities & Applications of the XAFCA beamline at SSLS

February 21st 2017

Aims & scope of meeting

The interest in using various modes of X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS) for characterising new materials continues to increase due to the unique capabilities of these techniques to unravel structural and electronic properties of materials with a wide range of applications. The aim of this workshop is to gather scientists from different fields that are currently using XAS to learn from each other experience and to discuss how to enhance the capabilities and applications of the XAFCA (X-ray Absorption Fine structure for Catalysis) beamline at SSLS, particularly for in-situ experiments and data acquisition.

Meeting format: The meeting will take place over one full day and will comprise a number of invited talks across the whole spectrum of applications of XAFCA
