Description

Science at FELs Satellite Meeting to SRI 2012


The Science at FELs Satellite Meeting to the 11th International Conference on Synchrotron Radiation Instrumentation in Lyon, France will present science highlights achieved in the first seven years of operation of short-wavelength free-electron lasers (FELs). Applications from quantum optics to life sciences and systems from atoms to complex solids will be featured. A focus will also be placed on new directions in science at FELs and challenges to scientific instrumentation.


Hamburg is directly connected to Lyon via airplane in less than two hours. Visits of the FLASH FEL facility at DESY and the European XFEL construction site will be included in the meeting programme.
