Energy-Tunable X-Ray Infrastructure At GT: Where We Are and Where Do We Want to Go?
May 16, 2022 | 10Am - 4PM |
Marcus Nanotechnology Building 1117-1118 | 345 Ferst Drive | Atlanta GA | 30332
This event aims to bring together researchers from across GT around the topic of energy-tunable and high-flux x-ray research infrastructure at GT. Energy-tunable x-ray infrastructure allows for unique measurements of materials structure and chemistry such as x-ray absorption, anomalous x-ray diffraction, high q-space pair distribution function, photon-in/photon-out operando experiments, and elemental contrast x-ray microscopy. The workshop has the dual purpose of: 1) uniting the interested parties to discuss further development, including plans for an NSF Mid-Scale Research Infrastructure proposal, and 2) training our current and future users on the data reduction, analysis (including fitting to models), and interpretation x-ray absorption spectra obtained at our benchtop easyXAFS instrument.
Presentation of current capabilities.
Presentation of potential target areas.
