APS Cross-Cut Review: Science Requiring the Pulsed Structure of the APS X-ray Beam

All APS staff and users are welcome to attend the second APS cross-cut review, entitled "Science Requiring the Pulsed Structure of the APS X-ray Beam."   This review is the second in a series of reviews designed to provide the APS Scientific Advisory Committee (SAC) with an overview of APS scientific accomplishments, programs, and capabilities in a specific area.  The review panel will be chaired by James Norris (The University of Chicago and APS SAC) and includes all APS SAC members plus two additional experts.  The review report will serve as a baseline document of current capabilities in this area, with especially noteworthy or unique areas highlighted.  The six scientific talks will be preceded by an overview presentation given by Murray Gibson.  The program will conclude with a talk by Michael Borland on future possibilities.  Abstracts of the individuals talks and copies of the presentations will be posted on this web site as they are received.  

Questions can be directed to Susan Strasser.
