The 2nd FELs of Europe Workshop on FEL Photon Diagnostics, Instrumentation, and Beamlines Design will be held in Trieste from June 8th to the 10th, 2015 at the International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP).

The workshop follows a 1st one organized in 2010 at DESY (PhotonDiag 2010) and will focus on the following topics:

  • Photon beam diagnostic techniques - measuring key properties of the FEL photon beam: intensity, pointing, position, spectral content, polarization, etc.
  • Time-related beam properties - temporal characterization of electron/FEL/laser beams: arrival times, pulse length & shape, timing & synchronization, stability issues.
  • FEL optics - challenges for ultra-short and ultra-intense pulses: fabrication and metrology - mirrors, gratings, zone plates, multilayers etc.: photon-induced damage – theory & practical avoidance.
  • Photon beam transport - preserving the special properties of the FEL pulse: pulse length, spectrum, coherence, wavefront, monochromators, beam splitters, etc.
  • Science instruments – meeting the special demands of experiments on FEL sources: dedicated endstations, sample injection and replacement, special experimental techniques etc.
  • Detectors & data handling for FEL-based experiments – designs, challenges & perspectives: electron & photon detectors, shot-by-shot detection, collation of diagnostic data.

As organizers of the PhotonDiag2015 workshop, we are willing to ask your company whether you would be interested in sponsoring this event. The 500€-fee guarantees:

  • one representative registered as full-participant
  • company logo and web-link inserted in the workshop homepage
  • company leaflet and/or advertising material (to be provided in due time) distributed to all attendees
  • poster presented during the workshop
  • desk in the poster session / coffee breaks area (just outside the workshop hall)

In order to help the organizers, we kindly ask you to register via Indico page (as normal registrants) without paying the 150€-fee at the end of the registration procedure. The 500€-fee will be charged via a debit note afterwards. Please, send also an email to photondiag2015@elettra.eu to inform the organizers about that.

Note: all the other representatives at the workshop must register (150€).
Should you have any questions and/or require further information, please do not hesitate to contact us.
