Moderators and organizers:
With the advent of high repetition rate Free Electron Lasers (FEL), Multi-Bend Achromat (MBA) Storage rings or more generally, diffraction-limited storage rings (DLSR), the requirements on mirror figure have become much tighter, to the point where conventional cooling solutions do not work well enough to preserve source brightness, and wave front. In this four-hour workshop, we would like to share ideas and paths toward Wavefront Preserving Mirror optical systems, in the presence of high heat load on the optics. Cryo-cooling, active or adaptive cooling schemes, water/nitrogen induced vibrations and new materials such as composite materials with ultra-low expansion characteristics are some of the topics we could address.
The workshop format is to have some short topical presentations and open discussion sessions. You are invited to submit a couple of slides summarizing your idea/question to the organizers to seed the discussion. The workshop is free of charge for all the participants to PhotonDiag 2017.
