X-Ray Science (GRS)
Gordon Research Seminar

Frontier Science with Forefront Synchrotrons and XFEL Sources


July 29-30, 2017


Stonehill College
Easton, MA

Meeting Description

The Gordon Research Seminar on X-Ray Science is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas.

X-ray science has played a very important role in physics, chemistry, biology, materials science, and in many other fields. Because utilizing advanced light sources like synchrotrons and XFELs has enabled to open new science and the development of novel x-ray characterization methods, this meeting will focus on recent advances in x-ray science and techniques from advanced light sources covering imaging, ultrafast science, time-resolved x-ray characterization, and other new techniques.

Related Meeting

This GRS was held in conjunction with the "X-Ray Science" Gordon Research Conference (GRC). Refer to the associated GRC program page for more information.
