Workshop 1:
Detectors for the Future

Organizers: A. Miceli and P. Fernandez (both APS)

Date: Wednesday, May 6, 2009, afternoon

Room: Bldg. 402, Lecture Hall

The APS Renewal project will likely involve substantial investment in cutting-edge commercial x-ray detectors and in a detector R&D program: about 80% of the APS Renewal beamline proposals and 100% of the science case reports explicitly mention additional commercial detectors and/or the development of novel detectors as essential enablers for science. The aims of this workshop are to present and refine the current plans for detector work in the context of the APS Renewal and to explore current and future developments in x-ray sensors and detectors.
