The 4th Diffraction Limited Storage Ring (DLSR) Workshop will be held at Argonne National Laboratory, Advanced Photon Source on November 19-21, 2014.

Synchrotron facilities around the world are developing plans for multi-bend achromat (MBA) storage rings that will push the performance of high-energy storage rings towards the diffraction limit in the hard x-ray regime. The very low electron-beam emittances made possible by these facilities will enable dramatic improvements in many areas of x-ray science, especially for experiments that directly use x-ray coherence. This workshop will address both accelerator and beamline technical challenges associated with the design, construction, commissioning and operation of fourth-generation storage rings enabled by MBA lattices.


Registration is required to attend the workshop. There is not a registration fee, but all are required to register for planning purposes. ANL and APS employees and resident users must also register for the workshop.
