4th JAEA Synchrotron Radiation Research Symposium : X-Ray and High Magnetic Field
March 5-7, 2009, SPring8, Hyogo, Japan

Symposium Program is here



The aim of the symposium is to discuss the potential of synchrotron radiation x-ray diffraction and spectroscopy in high magnetic field at SPring-8, ESRF and APS, as well as recent results of JAEA. It is a follow up to the previous workshops at Grenoble(2001), Tallahassee(2005), Grenoble (2006) and Argonne(2008).The program of the symposium includes the following topics:ERecent developments in high magnetic field applications at synchrotrons.EScience with synchrotrons and high magnetic fields, such as correlated electron systems, low-dimensional organic systems, and molecular magnets etc. An extensive communication will be encouraged between the syncrotron x-ray and high magnetic field user communities to create personal connections and prepare the ground for future collaborations. There will be a mixture of talks and poster sessions.Other topics such as theory, neutron scattering  and research on target materials for high magnetic field x-ray experiment are also welcome.

[VENUE and Time]

The symposium will be held at Lecture Hall in Public Relations Center of the SPring-8 (http://www.spring8.or.jp/), in Harima, Hyogo Prefecture. The tentative schedule is from 13:30 on 5th to 12:25 on 7th.
