 3D atomic imaging is an ultimate structural analysis, and it will play an important role for revealing mechanisms of functions in state-of-the-art materials.  In the present international workshop, we will discuss atomic resolution holography and diffractive imaging, which can image selectively “active sites” in materials, such as dopants, interfaces and nano-structures, and their applications. 
    The direct and accurate visualization of an atomic arrangement at the chemical and physical active sites in functional materials is one of the ambitious goals of the contemporary science. Recent innovative breakthroughs in diffraction and holography methods are the promising keystones which bring this dream into realization. In particular, 3D atomic-resolution holographic reconstruction methods based on photoemission, X-ray fluorescence, and X-ray CTR scattering phenomena, as well as diffractive imaging methods using coherent X-ray and electron have been developed. The workshop will focus on these rapidly growing atomic imaging techniques and their related methodology and will provide a forum to discuss new science and potential applications by the 3D atomic imaging.

    The workshop consists of lectures by foreign invited speaker, general aural presentation and poster presentations. 


On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we are happy to welcome you to Kashiwa, and to the workshop. The Institute for Solid State Physics (ISSP), the University of Tokyo is one of centers of excellence of materials, and therefore, state-of-art structural analysis methods with X-rays, electrons, and neutrons have been intensively developed. We are looking forward to the many attendee and hot discussion by holding the present workshop here.
