2014 X-Ray Science Division (XSD) Visitor Program

Due to the uncertain budget, XSD will not host the Visitor Program in 2014.

X-Ray Science Division (XSD) Visitor Program

The XSD Visitor Program hosts expert scientists at the Advanced Photon Source (APS) for short stays of 2-3 months. The goal of the program is to establish long-term scientific collaborations and/or begin to lay foundations for new scientific initiatives.

Proposals will be judged on the basis of scientific merit and contributions to the mission of the APS, i.e. to enable frontier science using x-rays.
