Workshop 4: Inelastic X-ray Scattering: Present and Future at the APS

Co-organizers: Ercan Alp and John Hill

This one-day workshop will focus on the inelastic x-ray scattering work being performed at various beamlines at the APS, including XOR-3, CMC-CAT-9, BESSRC/XOR-11 and BESSRC/XOR-12, GSECARS-13, HP-CAT-16, and UNI-CAT-33.

The topics will include collective excitations in high-temperature liquids, phonons in solids at high pressures and temperatures, monitoring the formation of covalent bonds under pressure, phonons in actinides, vibrational study of enzymes, protein model compounds, proteins, and collective electronic excitations in manganites and cuprates.

In addition, there will be a session on the near future of IXS at the APS, with a discussion of plans for IXS-CDT, CMC-CAT, HP-CAT, and the proposed actinide elements beamline.
