Development of ultrabright x-ray sources opened new possibilities to study the structure of materials. X-ray scattering methods applied at novel x-ray sources allow to study tiny objects, as well as ultrafast structural dynamics. One of such methods, the so-called Fluctuation X-ray Scattering (FXS), which is based on the application of the angular cross-correlation functions (CCFs), has been proposed some time ago to study biological particles in solution. Since that time, the theory of FXS has been considerably extended, and the method has been applied to diverse types of materials, such as liquid crystals, colloids, self-assembling nanoparticles, amorphous glasses, nano- and bio-particles in solutions and aerosols. Particularly, in the structural studies of soft-matter systems the method is also known as X-Ray Cross-Correlation Analysis (XCCA).
The scope of the Workshop "Fluctuation X-Ray Scattering" is to review recent theoretical and methodological advances in FXS, as well as applications of the FXS approaches for materials research at storage rings, Free-Electron Lasers (FELs), and other facilities.
The two-day online Workshop includes 5 invited talks each day, highlighting various research topics in FXS and XCCA.
We are looking forward to seeing you!
