The Resonant Inelastic X-ray Scattering (RIXS) program at the APS is one of the world-leading synchrotron radiation programs. It addresses a multitude of complex materials with novel phenomena of enormous scientific importance and great technological potential, such as unconventional superconductivity, colossal magenetoresistance in manganites, multiferroics, and graphene. In order to push the envelope for this technique, leading to higher scientific impact and a more diverse user community, this workshop focuses on reviewing last year’s breakthrough scientific discoveries achieved with unprecedented energy-resolution at APS, as well as prospecting and exploring emerging scientific opportunities for the upcoming new RIXS beamline and its expanded capabilities, including the improved energy resolution and special sample environments.
