Workshop 'The Nanoworld in Action'

03 May 2010

In the second week of June (7-8 June 2010) the workshop 'The Nanoworld in Actions' will be held in Groningen. The organization of the workshop is based at KVI. Chairmen will be Prof. Ronnie Hoekstra (KVI - Atomic and Molecular Physics) and Prof. Paul van Loosdrecht (Zernike Institute for Advanced Materials).

The central goal of the workshop is in general to promote research that can be done with coherent, ultra-short X-ray pulses as can be generated  by free-electron lasers (e.g. FLASH, LCLS and in the future XFEL) and in particular the local plans to make KVI the local home base with its own compact free-electron laser for soft X-rays - XFEL - with international standing and with worldwide attraction. The workshop will have a strong interdisciplinary character and will bring together scientists from atomic, molecular and optical physics, biophysics, solid-state and nanophysics, and physical chemistry. Besides, there will be ample attention for revolutionary technological developments and challenges, like the X-band accelerator technology (CLIC) being developed at CERN, which enable a compact facility like ZFEL.
