International Workshop on

X-ray Mirror Design, Fabrication and Metrology (IWXM 2015)

The International Workshop on X-ray Mirror Design, fabrication and metrology IWXM 2015 will be held at the Advanced Light Source (ALS) in Berkeley, California, USA as a satellite meeting of SRI 2015. The workshop will provide a forum for presentation and discussion of the latest information and achievements in X-ray optics, especially mirror optics. The meeting will introduce new concepts, equipment, and products, as well as highlight recent advances in X-ray optics and optical systems.

Dear Colleague,

Following the highly successful IWXM workshops, recently held in 2009 at Osaka University in Japan, and in 2012 at the ALBA, Spain, as well as related series of the ACTOP and MEADOW workshops, we are pleased to announce the next in the series International Workshop on X-ray mirror design, fabrication and metrology IWXM 2015 to be held at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Advanced Light Source on July 13-16, 2015 as a satellite meeting of SRI 2015.

X-ray optics is a vibrant and critical field determining the ultimate research capabilities at synchrotron and Free Electron Laser (FEL) x-ray sources. The last 3 years have seen significant progress in a number of exciting areas such as realization of new methods for fabrication, ex-situ characterization, and in situ fine tuning of X-ray optics and optical systems, better understanding of the optical specification, adequate to stricken requirements for wave front (coherence) and brightness preservation, as well as development of metrology methods and methods for comprehensive characterization and calibration of the metrology instrumentation for x-ray optics. The motivation for this 3-day workshop is to continue to explore the current state of the art in x-ray optics and associated metrology, to formulate directions for future research, and to identify areas for collaborative research.

The registration and abstract submission for the IWXM 2015 will be available at the end of January 2015.

The preliminary workshop agenda is posted on this website. Though the workshop agenda will be updated on the website as we finalize the plans after reviewing the submitted abstracts, the organizers envision a workshop format that will closely follow the structure of the last workshop in Barcelona. There will be a mix of invited and contributed talks, discussion sessions, and posters. We plan to publish the workshop contributions in a special issue of Nuclear Instruments and Methods in Physics Research, Section A. Everyone is encouraged to prepare a manuscript for a peer review publication on topics of interest, both to explore new ideas and to describe the latest achievements.
