X-Ray Science (GRS)
Gordon-Kenan Research Seminar


August 6-7, 2011


Colby College
Waterville, ME


Stephan O. Hruszkewycz

Associate Chair:
Anne Marie March

Meeting Description

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.

This GRS was held in conjunction with the "X-Ray Science" Gordon Research Conference (GRC). Refer to the associated GRC program page for more information.
