2011 Advanced Light Source User Meeting

Workshop on Novel Trends in Photoemission

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, October 4-5, 2011

Location: Building 2, Room 100B (1st floor)




The workshop "Novel trends in photoemission" will be held from October 4-5 as part of the 2011 ALS User Meeting.  Photoelectron spectroscopy has become a very powerful experimental tool to study the electronic structure of a wide range of complex materials, most notably high-temperature superconductors and other correlated electron systems.  Photoemission covers a large range of techniques, with beamlines at the ALS offering angle-resolved photoelectron spectroscopy (ARPES), ambient pressure photoelectron spectroscopy, and hard X-ray photelectron spectroscopy.

This workshop aims to bring together researchers to discuss new trends in the field of photoemission spectroscopy, such as high-resolution, spin-resolved, soft X-ray, low-temperature, or time-resolved experiments and photoelectron studies of novel materials and physics.  In addition, the meeting will cover instrumentation developments, including fast detectors, new beamlines and source capabilities, sample preparation, and advances in data analysis.  We can also discuss opportunities and challenges arising from laser ARPES and from next-generation light sources based on free electron lasers for the future of photoemission.

Participants are invited to share their thoughts about new trends and incarnations of photemission and the ways they can contribute to solving outstanding problems of condensed matter physics.  We also encourage students and postdocs to take an active part in the workshop and come up with short (about 10 minutes) either well-prepared or spontaneous talks.
