Workshop "Hight-throughput X-ray diffraction imaging"

par Serge Cohen - publié le

IPANEMA (CNRS, Ministry of Culture, UVSQ), Néel Institute (CNRS, UGA), the synchrotrons SOLEIL and ESRF are co-organizing a 4-days workshop on the "Hight-throughput X-ray diffraction imaging" from 7 to 10 November 2016 on synchrotron SOLEIL’s site.

The purpose of this workshop is to explore both new uses of the diffraction of X-rays made possible through instrumental advances and tools for the exploitation of the data produced. Indeed, the increase in brightness of synchrotron sources, improvement of sensors’ efficiency and dynamic have led to an increase of at least 6 orders of magnitude to the throughput of measurements using X-ray diffraction. Such throughput enables new modalities of X-ray diffraction characterisation, provided that one masters the reduction and analysis of large amounts of the data thus generated.

The event aims of the workshop is to encourage the exploitation of the new X-ray diffraction imaging modalities through exhibition of what is already done in terms of application and methodology. The aim is also to guide future methodological research to ease and democratize what is already possible using these imaging methods. This happens both through the consolidation of existing protocols and the creating of new protocols to cover experiments practically not feasible at present.

The workshop is organized in the context of IR-drx 2016 funded project, a project funded under the Imag’In « Défi » program organised by the « Mission pour l’Interdisciplinarité ». Registration to the workshop is free of charge but mandatory.

All information about the event as well as the interventions submission guidelines are posted on the website

Regular updates will take place on this site and we will soon get back to you with more information, however, do not hesitate to contact us for more information.

We thank you in advance for helping us spread the information through your contacts.
