The Workshop on Scientific Opportunities for Fourth Generation Light Sources

October 27 to 29, 1997

at the Advanced Photon Source at Argonne National Laboratory.

This workshop is being co-hosted by APS, NSLS, SSRL and TJNAF.


This workshop will explore the phenomenology of interactions with ultra-high-power, -brilliance, and -coherence light sources in the DUV, soft x-ray, and x-ray regimes, as well as the scientific opportunities they provide. The workshop will begin with tutorials on the generation and properties of these sources and identify issues in their use in experimentation. Also included will be an overview of current efforts to develop these sources and a review of the scientific opportunities defined by previous research and workshops. These background talks will be followed by a number of working group sessions on phenomenology and scientific areas of interest. The outcome of this workshop is expected to be an authoritative report that can be used by scientists, scientific managers, and science policy makers to chart future directions for fourth-generation light sources.
