APS Cross-Cut Review: Science with Microbeams

All ANL staff are welcome to attend the "Science with Microbeams" review on Wednesday, January 21, 2004, in the Building 402 Conference Center auditorium.  This event is the first APS "cross-cut" review, designed to provide the APS Scientific Advisory Committee (SAC) with an overview of APS scientific accomplishments, programs, and capabilities in a specific area--in this case microbeam/microscopy research programs involving x-rays focused to ~10µm and smaller.  The review panel will be chaired by Gerhard Materlik from the SAC and includes all APS Scientific Advisory Committee members, plus two additional experts.  The review report will serve as a baseline document of current capabilities in the microbeam area, with especially noteworthy or unique areas highlighted, and could provide a means of identifying areas for new initiatives.  The 11 scientific talks will be preceded by an overview given by Murray Gibson and followed by a talk by Eric Isaacs on future nanobeam studies.

Questions can be directed to Susan Strasser.
