This international conference will bring together scientists from all over the world, working in fields involving electromagnetic radiation in the vacuum ultraviolet (VUV), soft X-ray and hard X-ray spectral regions generated by synchrotron, laser, or plasma based sources. Topics to be covered range from instrumentation and methods development to applications in a variety of fields.
- New Sources: diffraction limited storage rings, Free Electron Lasers, ultrashort pulse XUV lasers and X-ray tabletop sources
- Resonant elastic and inelastic X-ray Scattering
- X-ray absorption spectroscopy incl. linear, circular and magnetic dichroism spectroscopy
- Photoemission (angle/spin/time resolved, soft X-ray, hard X-ray, resonant, etc.)
- Imaging with nanoscale resolution: X-ray microscopy, coherent diffraction imaging, scanning small angle X-ray scattering etc.
- Coincidence spectroscopy
- Theory of X-ray spectroscopy and diffraction
- Advanced data analysis methods
- Time-resolved spectroscopy
- In-situ and operando applications
Applications of the above to:
- clusters and nanoparticles
- environmentally relevant problems
- novel and complex materials
- strongly correlated and magnetic materials
- biological systems
- industrial analytical problems
ETH Zurich (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, German: Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule Zürich) is an engineering, science, technology, mathematics and management university in the city of Zürich, Switzerland. Like its sister institution EPFL, it is an integral part of the Swiss Federal Institutes of Technology Domain (ETH Domain) that is directly subordinate to Switzerland's Federal Department of Economic Affairs, Education and Research.
ETH Zurich is consistently ranked among the top universities in the world. It is currently ranked as 5th best university in the world in engineering, science and technology, just behind the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Stanford University, Cambridge University and National University of Singapore in the QS World University Rankings.
Twenty-one Nobel Prizes have been awarded to students or professors of the Institute in the past, the most famous of whom was Albert Einstein with the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics, along with Niels Bohr who was awarded the 1922 Nobel Prize in Physics, both for work dealing with quantum physics. It is a founding member of the IDEA League and the International Alliance of Research Universities (IARU) and a member of the CESAER network.
The school was founded by the Swiss Federal Government in 1854 with the stated mission to educate engineers and scientists, serve as a national center of excellence in science and technology and provide a hub for interaction between the scientific community and industry.
