General Lab Information


We invite all to join us for the National Synchrotron Light Source II (NSLS-ll) and Center for Functional Nanomaterials (CFN) Users' Meeting from May 13–17, 2024. The meeting offers scientists from diverse disciplines an opportunity to share their work, discuss new results, and explore the latest advances in experimental capabilities in synchrotron science, nanoscale science, materials science, and biological sciences.

This year's meeting will be held as a hybrid event and will offer a plenary session, a poster session, four days of workshops, exhibitor booths, and an in-person banquet! The workshops cover a variety of scientific topics that are of importance to the user community, including multi-modal experiments, machine learning, and a number of imaging techniques that explore research in fields like materials science, clean energy, and medicine.
