SRMS-5 Conference Contributions

Table of Contents and Program



Welcome to the 5th International Conference on Synchrotron Radiation in Materials Science (SRMS-5). This conference, the latest in a series of international conferences that are held every two years, takes place at the Drake Hotel in Chicago from July 30 – August 2, 2006. It brings together leading edge researchers from around the world and is a celebration of the strong and increasingly important relationship between materials science and synchrotron radiation research.

SRMS-5 takes place at a time when a large proportion of the scientific research at synchrotron user facilities is in materials science and condensed matter physics. Further, with the rapid increase in interest in membranes, biomaterials and nanostructured materials, this fraction can only be expected to grow. It is noteworthy that among the research papers published during 2005 in the highly cited journals Nature and Science, 19% and 27% reported on materials research, and of these more than 25% made use of synchrotron radiation. The aim of SRMS-5 is to highlight recent breakthroughs in materials science using synchrotron radiation, and to open doors to future innovation and discovery.

The main organizer of SRMS-5 is the Advanced Photon Source at Argonne National Laboratory, with a local organizing committee that includes Northwestern University, the University of Chicago, the Illinois Institute of Technology, Iowa State University and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Professor Neville Greaves, University of Wales (UK), chairs the international advisory committee. Sponsors and endorsement for SRMS-5 come from Northwestern University, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and at Chicago, the Illinois Institute of Technology, the National Science Foundation and the University of Chicago. Corporate sponsors are Blake Industries, Mar USA and Advanced Design Consulting.

The main topical areas of the conference are polymers and biomaterials, thin films, electronic materials, surfaces and interfaces, magnetism, superconductivity, glasses and ceramics, engineering materials, nanostructured materials and self assembly, high-pressure materials science and materials under extreme conditions, archeological materials, catalysis and clusters, quantum dots and wires, complex oxides, and innovative instrumentation. With research in many of these areas advancing rapidly, this volume was created to bridge the gap between a conference program and a conference proceedings appearing six months to a year after the event. Thanks to the extraordinary support of the presenters at SRMS-5, this volume includes the locally refereed conference contributions for nearly 90% of the presentations. This enables conference attendees to make immediate use of the latest information in areas highlighted at the conference. There are 35 plenary and invited talks, 37 contributed talks and 134 poster presentations. Full color versions of the conference contributions can be viewed and downloaded from the table below.

We acknowledge the Office of Science in the U.S. Department of Energy and other U.S. agencies, as well as many governments abroad for their encouragement and support of materials research at synchrotron radiation facilities around the world. We also acknowledge the positive influence of earlier SRMS conferences, and in particular SRMS-IV, in developing the format of SRMS-5. Many thanks to the many active members of the international advisory committee and to the local organizing committee, and in particular Tracey Stancik as conference secretary, Al Macrander and Dean Haeffner as lead editor and co-editor of this volume, and John Quintana and George Srajer, for their many efforts and contributions to the success of this conference and the preparation of this volume.
