Extended period : Call for Application to Synchrotron Radiation Applications: Special Session on Synchrotron-based in-situ Characterization of Materials (SRA: in-situ) at SLRI
Application date by 28 January 2019
Announcement of Acceptance : 1 February 2019
Overview of SRA: in-situ
Since October 2016, the Multiple X-ray techniques beamlines (BL1.1W-MXT) has been operated for user service at SLRI, Thailand. The BL1.1W-MXT end-station is dedicated to various X-ray techniques including X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy (XAS), X-ray Fluorescence Spectroscopy (XRF), Wide-Angle X-ray Scattering (WAXS), and in 2019 X-ray diffraction (XRD).
In order to enhance the utilizations of the beamline as well as to introduce fruitful development of the end-station for user service, the Synchrotron Radiation Application: Special Session on Synchrotron-based in-situ Characterization of Materials (SRA: in-situ) has been organized. This symposium will be held on the 14th February 2019 at SLRI, Nakhon Ratchasima, Thailand.
The symposium consists of two main activities namely;
- Special talks from valuable speakers covering the utilizations of synchrotron radiation for in-situ monitoring the alteration of material properties. The talks include broad perspectives of materials such as catalysts, ceramics, metal and alloys, and crystalline porous materials. The focused techniques discussed herein are in-situ XRD and XAS.
- Meeting for X-ray diffraction commissioning beamtime at BL1.1W for beam time period of 2019. Participants are encouraged to discuss their research and potential projects, requirements for experimental setup, and the expectation for further development of BL1.1W end-station and sample environments. Moreover, the fruitful ideas for potential uses of high-resolution X-ray diffraction and X-ray diffraction imaging beamline at the new synchrotron ring (SPL-II) would be collected in this meeting.
Date and Venue
Thursday 14th February 2019 at Auditorium, 4th Floor, Sirindhornwitchothai Building, Synchrotron Light Research Institute, Nakhon Ratchasima, Thailand
- Develop the understanding of synchrotron-based utilities for in-situ investigation of material properties in both experimental and data analysis aspects.
- Introduce the new beamline end-station to potential users in order to initiate collaboration and network among SLRI scientists and users, from both academic and industrial sectors.
- Create a stage for discussion of potential commissioning proposals which could lead to fruitful research outcomes.
- Initiate user community for knowledge exchanges, collaborate partners to define the requirements for beamline end-station developments in order to support the need from users
