Workshop 8: Multi-modal Synchrotron Approach – Research Needs and Scientific Vision

Date: Wednesday, May 22, 2019

Organizer(s): Karen Chen-Wiegart (NSLS-II/BNL), Eric Dooryhee (NSLS-II/BNL), Iradwikanari Waluyo (NSLS-II/BNL), Lin Yang (NSLS-II/BNL), Eli Stavitski (NSLS-II/BNL), Andrew Kiss (NSLS-II/BNL), Stuart Campbell (NSLS-II/BNL)

Location: Berkner Hall, Room B - Bldg. 488


NSLS-II recognizes opportunities in utilizing complementary techniques across multiple beamlines at NSLS-II, and in combining synchrotron techniques with other techniques, such as the electron-based imaging methods at CFN, as well as theory and modeling. Such a holistic approach will bring higher impact and deeper understanding in complex, heterogeneous systems, critical for our scientific and technological drives. A truly integrated multimodal approach at synchrotron facilities also brings challenges in the logistics and in both hardware and software. The workshop is intended to draw discussions regarding the research needs and scientific vision with multimodality, from the NSLS-II user community, as well as scientists from other synchrotron facilities, universities, and industries.

Confirmed Speakers:

Bruce Gates (University of California - Davis), Marcus Hanwell (Kitware), Igor Levin (National Institute of Standards & Technology), Yiyang Li (Sandia National Laboratory), Mark Rivers (University of Chicago), Yang Yang (European Synchrotron Radiation Facility)
