Aim and Scope of the workshop

The workshop will focus on the science that will be possible by the construction of the enhanced-brightness phase-II storage ring with particular emphasis on the areas of materials and chemistry.

Increased brightness and coherence will bring benefits in a number of areas, especially those exploiting the coherent properties of the beam and/or requiring very high spatial resolution, e.g. coherent diffraction imaging, in-situ studies of catalysis, and metallurgy.

Invited experts will give their vision of the science that needs to be done and will become possible as a result of the upgrade, followed by in-depth discussion of the wider possibilities.
