Opportunities for microfluidic devices at Free Electron Lasers
The recent developments on microfluidics for X-ray free-electron laser (XFEL) experiments open up the possibility to address new scientific questions. Novel micro-fabricated devices enable reactions initiation by rapid mixing, taking XFEL experiments beyond static structure solution into the realm of time-resolved structural science for a wide range of samples. The workshop will address further challenges on liquid sample delivery. Sample consumption is the bottleneck for experiments with precious samples and strategies for its reduction will be discussed. Moreover, the high repetition rate of European XFEL demands rapid sample refreshment, a challenge for all sample delivery methods.
We are pleased to announce a workshop on microfluidics for X-ray free-electron laser experiments, which aims to bring together developers of liquid sample delivery, using diverse microfabrication techniques and sample delivery approaches. The workshop intends to be a platform for discussing the latest developments and foster exchange of information and expertise.
The one-day workshop will feature ten presentations from invited international scientists.
Registration is already open and will close on June 1st 2017.
The registration is free for all participants.
Places are limited to approximately 90 and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
