- Diamond is delighted to announce it is to run the first online edition of the Synchrotron Radiation School, taking place on Tuesday 5th, Wednesday 6th, Thursday 7th, Wednesday 13th and Thursday 14th October 2021.
The Synchrotron Radiation (SR) School aims to provide postgraduate students and post-doctoral researchers, who have limited experience, with a broad-based introduction to many of the different types of experiments conducted using SR techniques.
The Diamond SR School It is largely aimed at physical scientists, but life scientists are welcome to apply. The school gives the attendees the opportunity to obtain hands-on practical experience of performing an experiment on several of the Diamond Beamlines.
The format of the school will include: three days of lectures, tutorials and poster sessions, plus two days dedicated to remote experiments on a range of Diamond Beamlines (each attendee will be able to participate in at least two different experiments).
The school will be held entirely online (via Zoom).

Diamond has a low x-ray absorption relative to refractive strength and outstanding thermal properties, making it well-suited for refractive optics for high-power (white beam) and monochromatic synchrotron x-rays. In addition, single-crystal diamond offers the advantage of preserving beam coherence – an exciting property for high-brilliance and ultra-low-emittance new sources such as the multi-bend-achromat upgrade of the Advanced Photon Source (APS). In the last few years, several diamond lens prototypes had been produced by various groups and tested at different light sources. However, because of a large number of complex fabrication steps involved (packaging, ablation, polishing and metrology), combined with stringent accuracy requirements (1 micron standard deviation from the ideal paraboloid shape), a commercial grade diamond lens on par with industry standard beryllium optics was not available until now. In this seminar, we will present a current state of the art of diamond lenses: fabrication aspects, shape correction and test results from APS, NSLS-II and ESRF.

Workshop on Data Handling at the APS Coherent High-Energy X-ray (CHEX) Sector
You are invited to participate in a workshop on “Data Handling at the APS Coherent High-Energy X-ray (CHEX) Sector.” This online workshop will be held via Microsoft Teams on Thursday and Friday, October 21 and 22, 2021.
This workshop will focus on providing a forum to discuss a number of issues related to the plans for data handling at CHEX, including experimental control, data collection, and various data analysis methods relevant to the types of experiments that will take place at CHEX. It will consist of several invited talks, followed by opportunities for participant questions and discussion. A tentative agenda for the workshop is attached below.
Please register for the workshop by sending an email message to CHEXWorkshop@anl.gov, including your name, affiliation, citizenship, and email address. The link to connect to the meeting will be provided in an email to registered participants a few days before the workshop. There is no workshop registration fee. If you have questions about the workshop, please contact Jeff Eastman at email@example.com.
