The Gordon-Kenan Research Seminar on X-Ray Science is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas.
With the first hard x-ray free electron laser source beginning operation in the United States and with other advanced x-ray sources operational and planned around the world, it is a very exciting and pivotal time for exchange ideas about the future of x-ray science and applications. Because this field is expanding rapidly, merging the ultrafast x-ray and laser communities, this meeting will focus on recent advances in x-ray science and techniques from advanced light sources with sessions covering ultrafast science, time-resolved x-ray characterization, coherence, and other new techniques.
Seed funding for this new Gordon Research Seminar has been provided by the Kenan Institute for Engineering, Technology and Science at North Carolina State University.
