The proceedings of the REXS 2011 conference are now available as open access articles in European Physical Journal Special Topics 208.
The REXS 2011 conference is now over ! We hope you had a great time in Aussois !
The first conference dedicated to Anomalous or Resonant X-ray Scattering took place in Madrid in 1974, followed in 1992 by Malente conference (Hamburg, Germany, published as: ”Resonant Anomalous X-Ray Scattering“, by G. Materlik, C.J. Sparks & K. Fischer,North-Holland,1994). The aim was to bring together scientists using this novel technique specific to synchrotron radiation in a variety of fields.
20 years or so later, scientists of third generation synchrotrons intensively use this technique that opened to a broad range of applications such as magnetism and nanoscience. A need emerges of a school / conference with published synthesis that would set a similar milestone in condensed matter research. In order to favor scientific exchanges, we restrict the topics to elastic resonant scattering in condensed matter.
Aim of the conference: bring together young and experienced scientists from different fields in condensed matter to share their experience on the application of Elastic Anomalous/Resonant Small, or/and Wide Angle Scattering (including diffraction and reflectivity).
The conference will cover the following topics:
- Fundamentals of elastic resonant scattering
- Electronic correlations
- Soft condensed matter, polymers and glasses
- Materials science and chemistry
