X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy and Related Techniques at NSLS-II

June 1, 2010

Brookhaven National Laboratory, Bldg. 703 Large Conference Room

Workshop Chair:  Bruce Ravel

This is an organizational workshop for the Beamline Development Teams submitting proposals for beamlines offering X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy (XAS) and related techniques.  The current NSLS XAS community consists of nearly a dozen beamlines operating over many energy ranges and with bulk and micron-scale spatial resolutions. The purpose of this one-day workshop is to assure that the suite of spectroscopy beamlines proposed for NSLS-II meets the many needs of this established community by exchanging information, finding synergies between beamline concepts, avoiding conflicts between proposals, and matching interested parties with the appropriate Beamline Development Team.

Note: for those wishing to attend who do NOT have a valid BNL ID badge:

      1) Non-US citizens MUST register in the Guest Information System before May 27:

           2)  US citizens MUST send their names to by May 28  for BNL access.
