A Workshop on high-pressure time-resolved synchrotron techniques was held on September 25-27, 2014 at the Advanced Photon Source Conference Center and HPCAT, Argonne National Laboratory. More than 100 participants attended this two-and-a-half-day workshop. The attendees represented a diverse group of researchers at various career stages from different countries (US, Canada, Europe, China, Japan, India, and Australia) and different research environments (universities, national labs, research institutions and user facilities). Attendance of 32 young career scientists (students and postdocs) was made possible through generous travel grants from COMPRES and CDAC.
The workshop purpose and goals included:
- Identifying scientific goals and associated technical challenges for time-resolved studies using synchrotron radiation and laser driven sources
