Satellite workshop

Satellite Symposium: Coherence of UV-SoftX beams, a contribution to its exploitation

The new generation of light sources, Synchrotron Radiation, Free Electron Lasers, High Harmonic Generation, makes available to the users photon beams with unprecedented space and time coherence.
At this stage, SILS estimates appropriate to held a mini-symposium dedicated at discussing strategies for exploiting these enhanced characteristic of the light in the various disciplines.
The speakers will present, in workshop style, value and limitation of the increased coherence in their own field of expertise. The workshop will be closed by a 30’ general discussion.

Chairs: S. Nannarone, G. Stefani

Invited Speakers:

Lorenzo Avaldi (CNR-ISM)
Examples of coherence in atomic and molecular photoionization by a single photon (synchrotron radiation) and few photons (FEL)

Stefano Lupi (Sapienza University of Rome)
Terahertz and Infrared Synchrotron Radiation: Coherence helps its use?

Calogero Renzo Natoli (LNF-INFN)
Some odd consequences of self-coherence in the photo-diffraction and photo-absorption processes

Giorgio Margaritondo (Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne)
Microtomography with Coherent Synchrotron Radiation: Mapping the Human Brain
