Condensed matter physics has always been at the forefront of discovery of new phenomena and materials. The experimental and theoretical methods used varies but x-ray scattering and spectroscopy remains a vital tool. Existence and spatial and temporal extent of various excitations can be probes with variety of x-ray scattering and spectroscopic methods such as single crystal diffraction, magnetic scattering, dichroism, and inelastic x-ray scattering. Unlimited momentum transfer and remarkable energy and time resolution of hard x-rays play a major role in understanding the basic nature of solid state phenomena.
The goal of this workshop is to bring together experts in their field with experts in x-ray science to identify scientific frontiers, and relate them x-ray techniques and shape the future developments. This can be done by articulating the nature of the material development requirements, and commensurate improvements or design of new hardware, software, and computational tools.
