5th Banff Conference on Structural Dynamics

Date Sa, 18.02.2017 - Mi, 22.02.2017
Time All day
Speaker
Location Banff Centre, Canada
Program 5th Banff Meeting on Structural Dynamics (19-22 Feb 2017)

Recent years have seen dramatic successes in providing ‘atomic level views’ of important transient phenomena in materials, molecular and even biomolecular systems. These landmark studies were enabled by breakthroughs in high time-resolution x-ray and electron diffraction, crystallography, spectroscopy and imaging.

The future of this emerging field looks incredibly bright, with major advances in electron source intensity and coherence as well dramatic new capabilities from X-ray free-electron lasers. Along with new methods to take advantage of these sources, we have new disruptive technologies that are driving this field. The Banff Meeting in Structural Dynamics was founded to provide the perfect forum to disseminate the latest spectacular developments in opening up new vistas with atomic clarity. The first four meetings held in 2010, 2012, 2013, and 2015 were a resounding success and will be continued to provide an opportunity to meet and discuss current problems and chart a course for further successes.

Tentative session outline:
Latest Developments in ultrafast electron and x-ray sources
Dynamic and diffractive imaging of molecules (diffractive imaging and laser alignment)
Time-resolved x-ray spectroscopy of complex molecules
Strongly correlated materials
Structural dynamics in molecules and biomolecular systems
