LCLS-II Scientific Opportunities Workshops

The LCLS-II project will provide a major upgrade to the functionality of the LCLS x-ray free electron laser facility, delivering a compelling, internationally-leading capability that will open up significant new areas of science.

Following a series of major reviews, a baseline design for LCLS-II has been established that incorporates a 4 GeV superconducting accelerator and two undulators capable of delivering femtosecond-scale x-ray pulses at up to 1 MHz repetition rate for photon energies between 250 eV and 5 keV. These upgrades will also enable photon energies as high as 25 keV (in the fundamental beam) at 120 Hz repetition rate using the existing accelerator.

The LCLS team is organizing a series of three separate workshops to discuss the scientific opportunities of this new facility, and refine the technical requirements to ensure maximum impact during early operations and into the future. Each of workshops will focus on a different scientific topic: Materials Physics, Life Sciences and Chemistry. The results of these workshops will feed directly in to the science strategy for LCLS, and will help guide the design, commissioning and ultimate operation of the upgraded facility, as well as informing the R&D roadmap for instrumentation and machine performance.

We encourage everyone interested in applying LCLS-II to his or her scientific problems to attend. Separate registration is required for each of the three workshops. Registration is free and very simple. For more information and to register please visit the LCLS-II Scientific Opportunities Workshops website.
