Terahertz Science at European XFEL

Date Do, 01.06.2017 - Fr, 02.06.2017
Time all day
Location European XFEL, Schenefeld, Germany
Program The interaction of terahertz radiation with matter excites novel states with unique properties. These non-equilibrium states will certainly benefit from ultrafast characterization using the ultrashort and highly brilliant X-ray pulses available at FELs. With this in mind, we are pleased to announce a terahertz workshop, with the aim to find the most scientifically promising strategies to combine terahertz radiation with the unique X-ray pulses generated at European XFEL.

The 2 day workshop will be led by 18 presentations by invited international scientists. The first day will explore the scientific motivation for THz - X-ray experiments. The second day will focus on the two main routes to THz generation in the frequency range from 0.1 to 20 THz (3 mm to 15 µm): On the one hand, state of the art laser-based sources; and on the other, undulator sources based on a second, smaller accelerator. Specific aspects will be compatibility with the MHz repetition rate of the European XFEL and novel opportunities for coherent control in the multi-THz regime. We are interested in discussing how your research can benefit from a combination of these sources and help with their realization.

We encourage all participants to submit a poster to ensure that a broad range of THz - X-ray science can be discussed. A workshop dinner will take place on the evening of 1st June.

Registration opens: 01.03.2017 - 01.05.2017

Places are limited to approximately 90 and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
Financial support for UXSS 2017 is kindly provided by the JOACHIM HERZ STIFTUNG.

The deadline for registration is 31 March 2017. After the deadline, participants will be selected from the registrants and contacted with details of payment and other logistics.
