Abstract
:
In theory the electronic structure of crystalline solids is well connected to the crystal structure. In practice, studies of electronic and crystal structures are separated and rarely achieved in one experiment: X-ray diffraction/scattering resolves crystal structures while such spectroscopic techniques as X-ray absorption and photoemission probe the electronic structure.
This workshop will examine a possibility of uniting these previously well-separated techniques in one instrument. It will highlight technical challenges associated with the development of this instrument (and the synchrotron beamline) and discuss new knowledge it might deliver. The scientific motivation stems from the mounting evidence of nano- and macro-scale phase separation in strongly correlated materials, such as functionalized oxides, superconductors, etc. and a notion that structural ordering and electronic properties/ordering are intertwined. In addition the possibility to perform such studies at non-ambient conditions with the new instrument shall be explored. The combination of these techniques will be discussed in view of the future upgrade of the ALS
