Resonant Soft X-Ray Scattering for Mesoscale Science:
 New Research Perspectives And Advanced Data Analysis

Workshop at the 2013 ALS Users' Meeting

Location: B54-130B

To be held October 8 and 9, 2013.

Organizers: Cheng Wang, Alexander Hexemer, Anthony Young (ALS, LBNL)



Resonant soft x-ray scattering (RSoXS) on soft materials is a new approach that has been developed at  the ALS over the past a few years. The application of RSoXS has grown rapidly; in particular, the unique capability of scattering with polarized x-rays has recently been explored.  The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers who currently utilize soft x-ray scattering with scientists who could benefit from using the technique.  Current and potential research topics and analysis techniques will be discussed, with an aim of expanding RSoXS to a much broader range in the mesoscale science. This interaction ideally leads to synergistic overlap that will solve important material and device problems and identifies the areas of instrument and method developments that are most urgently needed.
