Workshop 2
Beamline 2.0: The Fully Integrated Instrument

May 5
Building 402, Room E1100/E1200
8:30 am – 12:00 pm
1:30 pm – 5:30 pm

Organizers: Lahsen Assoufid (APS), Dean R. Haeffner (APS), Peter J. Eng (University of Chicago), and John P. Quintana (APS)

The potential of an APS upgrade gives the community the opportunity to reexamine the paradigm on which beamlines are designed and integrated. The workshop will examine storage ring beamlines from the standpoint of complete integrated instruments from the particle beam through the final experimental setups. Future directions in state-of-the-art synchrotron radiation instrumentation technology will be explored. Speakers will present their individual topics within the framework of what is required of a completely integrated beamline instrument.

The organizers gratefully acknowledge the following sponsors: ALIO Industries and InSync, Inc.
