XFELs for Beginners 2023

General Information:

Since many years, the Institute of Nuclear Physics Polish Academy of Sciences has actively participated in promoting scientific research conducted on synchrotron sources as well as in popularizing research performed at X-ray free electron lasers (XFEL). In this context, on the 12th - 13th of October 2023, the Institute of Nuclear Physics Polish Academy of Sciences (IFJ PAN) in Krakow together with the Institute of Physics Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw and under the auspices of Polish Synchrotron Radiation Society (PTPS) will organize a workshop entitled: "XFELs for beginners", with the aim to familiarize young scientists with the subject of research and measurement methods at X-ray Free Electron Lasers. This will be the third edition of these workshops.

The planned workshop will include lectures given by scientists working directly with XFEL facilities. During the workshop, we also plan to conduct short course on the preparation of experiments for XFEL research using the laboratories of the Department of Applied Spectroscopy at the Institute of Nuclear Physics Polish Academy of Sciences in Krakow. The course will be prepared by researchers from IFJ PAN and will aim to familiarize the workshop participants with the methods of sample preparation for research with X-ray lasers as well as with the use of high energy resolution X-ray spectroscopy setups.

We hope that the combination of lectures with the course in the laboratory will significantly increase the attractiveness of these workshops. In order to enable young scientists and students to participate, the organizers decided to waive the registration fee. The on-line participation is also possible (but without practical training).

The workshop was supported by a grant of the Polish Ministry of Education and Science - decision no. 2022/WK/13.
