This workshop aims at exploring the possible impact, which a planned upgrade of beamline 12.3.2 could have on the local user community.

The upgrade will address a perceived demand for low-tech in-situ materials characterization using medium resolution powder diffraction, micro-EXAFS and micro SAXS with a spatial resolution between 1 and 10 um. With this workshop we would like on one hand to showcase the planned beamline improvements and on the other hand solicit input from the targeted user groups and experts in the field on possible technical pitfalls and requirements.
