DESY is currently building a new inelastic x-ray scattering instrument at the high brilliance beamline P01 of PETRA III. This workshop is organized to present the current design parameters of the beamline and to connect with the potential user community. At this early stage, it would also be beneficial to share ideas with the experts of the field and discuss with members of the beamline advisory committee (BAC). The workshop will take place at the DESY campus in Hamburg, Germany on 2-3 March 2012. More information will be posted on this website as they become available.
