General Lab Information


This is a two-day Symposium (“EXAFS-50”) that will be devoted to marking the 50th anniversary of discovery of EXAFS. The workshop will bring together the scientists that will talk about the past and present of EXAFS technique and cover topics discussing its future potential and applications. EXAFS is one of the major synchrotron techniques at the DOE light sources and the workshop’s scope directly supports the mission of DOE to establish leadership in advanced characterization at the DOE large user facilities.

This EXAFS-50 Symposium is not open to the public and we plan to record the proceedings. To be eligible to attend, all participants must register online by September 30, 2023. For questions or assistance with registering, please contact the symposium coordinator.
