Discovery and development of advanced materials are vital to modern society. Novel materials such as graphene and its derivatives, iron-based pnictide and chalcogenide superconductors, or materials put together in novel ways such as lithium ion batteries and functional materials that have unique electrical, magnetic or optical properties like multiferroics, optoelectronics and sensors.
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.
APS-U project is going to provide orders of magnitude improvement in x-ray beam brightness, coherence, and new undulators for polarization manipulation at hard x-ray energies. We expect that workshop participants will discuss ways to help define the path forward and provide information and guidance to APS staff for future beamline developments connected to APS-U upgrade project.
