EIGER2 Feature Upgrade Meeting
Jun 7 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Pascal Hofer and Tilman Donath (Dectris) are visiting APS on June 6-7 and may share with us recent updates and answer questions.

Tentatively I have scheduled meeting with them on June 7 at 1 pm, 434 conference room.

Below is the title and summary of the presentation:

Titel “EIGER2 Feature Upgrade”

The feature Upgrade includes:

  • “8-Bit Readout” to double the frame rate, and “Lines-ROI Mode for Region-of-Interest readouts of up to 100 kHz
  • “Double-Gating Mode” for Gating experiments with simultaneous pre- and post-pump acquisition
  • “STREAM2” enables Dual-Threshold readout at the full bandwidth

Additionally, a discussion section in the second half about High Energy specific topics.

National School on Neutron and X-ray Scattering
Jul 10 @ 9:00 am – Jul 22 @ 5:00 pm

ANL plans to host this event in person at Argonne National Laboratory and Oak Ridge National Laboratory. However, our plans are contingent on the federal and local COVID-19 controls and guidance in place on the date of the event. If the event is unable to take place in person, programming will shift to a virtual format.

Overview

The main purpose of the National School on Neutron and X-ray Scattering is to educate graduate students in the use of major neutron and x-ray facilities. Lectures, presented by researchers from academia, industry, and national laboratories, include basic tutorials on the principles of scattering theory and the characteristics of the sources, as well as seminars on the application of scattering methods to a variety of scientific subjects. Students will conduct short remote experiments at Argonne’s Advanced Photon Source and at Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s Spallation Neutron Source and High Flux Isotope Reactor, which provides hands-on experience using neutron and synchrotron sources.
