High-energy x-ray micro-mapping of materials for advanced energy and structural engineering applications beamline (HEX)
May 6, 2011
Brookhaven National Laboratory, Bldg. 725, Seminar Room
Workshop Chair: Mark Croft (email: email@example.com, 24/7 contact 732-322-4644)
This workshop will focus on the application of deeply penetrating, high energy and high flux x-rays from a superconducting wiggler, to problems central to this nations technological future, such as the in situ advanced battery electrochemistry characterization during cycling and in situ strain mapping of engineering materials under loading. The primary objective of the workshop is to incorporate expertise and user community input for the preparation of a NSLS-II, Beamline Development Proposal for such beamline dedicated to the scientific underpinning of engineering and technology .
As will be discussed at the workshop the beamline is currently envisioned to incorporate facets of the layouts of the NSLS X17 A&B beamlines and the JEEP beamline at the UK Diamond Synchrotron (see http://www.diamond.ac.uk/Home/Beamlines/I12/layout.html). An illustrative white paper, albeit a couple of years old, on some high energy x-ray scattering engineering applications can be found at http://www.physics.rutgers.edu/~croft/papers/WhitePaperEDXRD2-27-08-2100-4-18-08-3-11-09.pdf. An illustrative recent electrochemistry paper from X17B1 can be found at: http://www.physics.rutgers.edu/~croft/papers/177-pre-Insitu-sodium-metal-halide-cells.pdf
It should be noted that the proposed beamline will incorporate high energy monochromatic as well as white beam x-ray scattering . A tomography facet to the beamline will also be discussed.
