XFEL Detectors Workshop 28th & 29th March 2006

Provisional Programme

The proposed European X-ray Free Electron LASER (XFEL) project will deliver an unprecedented opportunity to perform world leading science using a highly flexible, intense, pulsed X-ray source. One of the key elements in turning these opportunities into reality will be the existence of state-of-the-art detection systems, capable of exploiting the unique nature of this source. In order to explore this key XFEL element in detail, the European XFEL project team with CCLRC are holding an ‘XFEL Detectors Workshop’. The purpose of this workshop will be to;

1. Gain a clearer idea of what the scientific requirements will be and their impact on the detection systems,

2. Develop a list of applicable and interesting technologies which could contribute to the XFEL detection systems,

3. Understand what detection systems could be developed for XFEL in the short, medium and long terms,

4. Review areas of synergy between XFEL detector developments and other projects such as LCLS.

5. Provide additional information for the overall XFEL documentation.
