Submission deadline for the Swiss Physical Society Meeting with special SwissFEL symposium

The next annual meeting of the SPS will take place from 28 - 31 August 2018 at EPFL. The program will consist of the proven mix of plenary talks, topical sessions and poster exhibition. The meeting is organised in collaboration with the Swiss Institute of Particle Physics (CHIPP) and the NCCR MARVEL (Computational Design and Discovery of Novel Materials). They all together guarantee an exciting conference covering physics at its best.

SwissFEL – recent advances and future opportunities

In the last ten years, X-ray science has had an impressive growth and many developments were made due to the introduction of X-ray Free Electron Laser light sources and their unique photon properties. In comparison to synchrotron storage rings, XFELs have brought a significant improvement in time resolution (i.e. typical pulse widths below 100 fs), with an impressive increase in photon flux per pulse by several orders of magnitude.
The new XFEL facility at PSI, SwissFEL, delivers femtosecond photon pulses of spatially coherent X-rays in the wavelength range 0.1 to 7 nm (180 eV to 12.4 keV), with extremely high peak brightness. The first experiments performed in 2017 mark the beginning of the ultrafast X-ray science capabilities at this facility for the scientific community.
This session will be dedicated to present the most recent achievements in ultrafast X-ray science in selected research fields including condensed matter physics, materials science, chemistry, molecular physics, and non-linear x-ray science.
