Molecular Physics and Physical Chemistry with Advanced Photon Sources - 739. WE-Heraeus-Seminar

Date So, 24.01.2021 - Do, 28.01.2021
Location Physikzentrum Bad Honnef, Germany
Program Scientific organizers: Prof. Dr. Ingo Fischer, U Würzburg • Dr. Laurent Nahon, SOLEIL • Dr. David L. Osborn, Sandia Natl Lab

Broadly tunable photonsources (light sources) like storage rings (synchrotron radiation, SR) and Free Electron Lasers (FEL) that went into operation in the last decade provide radiation of high brilliance. They open exciting prospects for molecular spectroscopy and dynamics in several spectral regions that were traditionally difficult to access. It is therefore timely to address the potential of advanced photon sources for molecular physics and physical chemistry and review the state of the art in the research fields that already or potentially will benefit from these sources, among them combustion science, astrophysics, and atmospheric chemistry.

In this seminar, we will bring together scientists from light source facilities, who are involved in beamline development and the implementation of new applications, with present and prospective users inmolecular physics and physical chemistry, who are interested in the opportunities that such light sources provide now and especially in the near future. In particular, we wish to emphasize the opportunities that arise from combining the properties of different light sources in a single research program. We wish to promote discussions between beamline scientists and users, to utilize the full potential of ongoing developments and to establish new collaborations. It is a further goal to motivate young scientists to present work that uses advanced photon sources or would potentially benefit from it, because fresh ideas of young scientist are critical for the development of the field. The program will therefore constitute a mix of plenary, invited, and contributed lectures as well as ample time for a poster session. Sufficient time for discussions will be scheduled after the talks. In addition we schedule a round table discussion that addresses questions by young scientists concerning careers in science. The focus on the interaction between advanced and junior researchers will distinguish this seminar from other meetings in the field

The conference language will be English. The Wilhelm and Else Heraeus-Foundation bears the cost of full-board accommodation for all participants.
