Stanford/SLAC and NIST Workshop on 
Core-Level Spectroscopy Simulation

The TIMES program at Stanford in collaboration with NIST will conduct a user-oriented hands-on workshop on the core-level Bethe-Salpeter Equation (BSE) method and the OCEAN code for X-ray spectroscopy simulations between July 12 and July 14. The three-day session will consist of lectures by invited speakers, talks, and hands-on sessions for x-ray experimentalists and researchers new to theoretical spectroscopy. The workshop is designed to benefit X-ray spectroscopy practitioners interested in simulating core-level spectra relevant to condensed matter physics and materials chemistry applications. Our aim is to enable wider utilization of the BSE approach for spectroscopies such as X-ray absorption (XAS), X-ray Emission (XES) and Resonant Inelastic X-ray scattering (RIXS). The workshop also aims to facilitate discussions between theory researchers on recent developments in X-ray spectroscopy simulations more broadly


Invited Speakers will include:

John Rehr, University of Washington

Sinéad Griffin, LBNL

Yufeng Liang, LBNL

Chunjing Jia, Stanford

Das Pemmaraju, Stanford

John Vinson, NIST

Students and researchers wishing to participate in the Summer School can register here for Free. The deadline for registration is on June 29, 2018.

The Summer School will be chaired by Das Pemmaraju (SLAC) and John Vinson (NIST). The Summer School will be held at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory site. Funding for the Summer School program is provided by NIST and Stanford University. Questions? Please email john (dot) vinson (at) nist (dot) gov or dasc (at) slac (dot) stanford (dot) edu.
