EUROMAT2017 Symposium: Materials Science with Synchrotron Radiation X-rays

Sunday, September 17, 2017 to Friday, September 22, 2017
Event Type: 
Thessaloniki Concert Hall Convention and Cultural Center Thessaloniki

This symposium intends to bridge the gap between the available modern X-ray synchrotron radiation techniques and innovative materials research. It aims at fostering the dialog between materials scientists and experts in X-ray methods. Thanks to orders of magnitude improvements in source brilliance and increased availability, great progress in the application of X-ray methods to materials science has been made. An improved control of the space-time structure of the probing X-ray photons and the concurrent development of sophisticated experimental set-ups and data analysis schemes is resulting in highly refined characterization of materials and devices. We welcome abstracts on:
• Novel applications of X-ray synchrotron methods to the study and characterization of advanced materials and devices. •  New instruments, methods and/or analysis tools and protocols. •  Complementary studies with laboratory x-rays sources.

•        Development of in situ environmental stages for real and reciprocal space imaging and their applications
•        Coherent imaging and developments in image reconstruction
•        3D diffraction imaging
•        X-ray microscopy
•        Joint XAS/XES investigations of advanced materials
•        Spatially resolved spectroscopy (including XAS, XRF, XPS, XPEEM) of advanced materials and devices.
•        Spectroscopic studies of transient states
•        Local structure of dopants/defects by spectroscopy and ab-initio simulations
•        Oxide ultra thin films: defectivity and reactivity
•        Ordering at the meso- and nano-scale
•        Surface, interface and adsorption studies
