EUCALL Workshop “Addressing Societal Challenges using Advanced Laser Light Sources"

Date Do, 26.04.2018 - Fr, 27.04.2018
Location DESY CSSB Auditorium, Hamburg
Program The European Cluster of Advanced Laser Light Sources (EUCALL) invites you to join the open EUCALL Workshop “Addressing Societal Challenges using Advanced Laser Light Sources". The workshop highlights research using synchrotron, free-electron laser and optical laser light sources in areas of high relevance to societal needs. Requests for research driven by these needs and the challenges in addressing these requests will be introduced. Examples of experiments using light sources will demonstrate the contributions light sources already provide.

A special topic will be to discuss how a combined use of synchrotron, free-electron laser and optical laser light sources opens a route to obtaining additional information in these research fields.

Invited speakers will describe research needs and applications using x-ray and ultraviolet radiation techniques in the fields of:


Dr. Philippe Wernet (HZB, Germany)
Prof. Majed Chergui (EPFLausanne, Switzerland)
Prof. James Durrant (Imperial College, UK)
