Real-Conditions & Real-Time (Parallel Session)

Real-Conditions & Real-Time 

Tuesday 24 September

Room: GIGA

The enormous development of synchrotron radiation sources, of experimental techniques, and of instrumentation during the past decades has made it possible that we today can map chemical processes under real conditions and in real time. A large variety of different fields, such as catalysis, corrosion, materials science, bio- and biogeophysics, etc. profit greatly from the insights that can be gained when the sample is exposed to ambient pressures during measurement and when chemical processes are mapped with a time resolution down to the ms scale. We would like to use the session on real conditions and real time to highlight some of the developments within the field that have taken place and that will take place, e.g. at the new MAX IV facility, and to provide a showcase for research that is carried out already today.
