New Scientific Opportunities in Ultra High Resolution Spectroscopy: from Nano Materials to Complex Quantum Systems

October 21, 2000
Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Laboratory, SLAC

Training Center

Christopher Chidsey, Robert Laughlin (Stanford University), Z.-X. Shen,
(SSRL/Stanford University) and Changyoung Kim (SSRL) 

The SSRL storage ring will soon be upgraded to a third generation ring, providing exciting
new opportunities for scientific research in the UV range. The focus of the workshop is
on the area of ultra-high resolution spectroscopy using 10-300 eV photons. The aim of
the workshop is to explore and identify scientific themes that are important and ready to
benefit from the SPEAR3 upgrade, and to identify the best beam line configuration to
serve the interests and need of the research community.
