Workshop on Emerging Scientific Opportunities Using X-Ray
August 29 September 1, 2004, The Abbey, Fontana,
Lake Geneva Area, Wisconsin
- Explore the broad applications of hard x-ray imaging to traditional and
potentially new problems in science and engineering.
- Evaluate the potential scientific applications of quantitative phase techniques.
At the same time, emphasize applications requiring medium resolution (few
micrometer) imaging with large field of view (10 mm).
- Broaden the community by including researchers from non-traditional disciplines.
- Identify new scientific proposals/programs which the participants will
bring to the APS during next 5 to 10 years. Also evaluate the capital and
operational requirements for these proposals/programs to be successful.
- Examine existing beamline capabilities at the APS and define what future
beamline capabilities would be desirable.
- Assess the availability of x-ray imaging facilities and the need to improve
other x-ray techniques that complement the imaging field (e.g. diffraction,
- Generate adequate information to define detector R&D specifications
and computational requirements for image processing and reconstruction. In
particular, address institutional, national and international collaborations
in these areas.
- Prepare a summary document for the archival literature to serve as a roadmap
for the future of the workshop topic utilizing the capabilities of the Advanced
