The idea behind the workshop is to consider how this community can best use MAX IV to study strongly correlated behaviour.
MAX IV is a bright, highly coherent source and resonant X-ray techniques have shown a lot of potential in this field, the specific focus of the meeting will be how to use these parameters for the study of strongly correlated behaviour including, but not limited to, superconductivity, multiferroicity, heavy fermion systems, spin-orbit coupling, topological phases, etc.
During the workshop, a number of beamlines will present their plans and capabilities for the user community. These beamlines cover both soft and hard X-rays and represent imaging, scattering/diffraction, and spectroscopy techniques. Furthermore, theoretical and experimental experts in the field will share their knowledge and insights to kick-start the formation of new ideas around the use of MAX IV for the study of these solid state phenomena.
An important aspect of the program will be time for discussion: we would like to have an open forum for the brainstorming of possible novel experiments; explore the use and combination of new techniques; or debate hardware such as specific sample environments. The overall aim of these discussions is to find common ground for scientific collaborations, define projects, and maybe even take concrete steps towards beamtime applications or the building of experimental equipment.
In order for this to be as productive as possible, we would like to ask you to bring 1-3 slides of your own research interests or questions, which can be used during the discussions to illustrate your research and help to identify how/where/which X-ray techniques at MAX IV can contribute.
The workshop is organized together with ESS, which will be the focus of a dedicated workshop for this community in the future.
