Oct. 2: LCLS Detectors
Organizer: Gabriella Carini (Bldg. 48, ROB C/D, AM)

This workshop will provide a short overview of basic detection principles and systems available at LCLS. Hands-on tutorials on CSPADs will follow and a final outlook on detector plans will conclude this half-day workshop dedicated to LCLS detectors. Participants will get an introduction into how to take and apply calibration data, use online monitoring to assess their data and tune their experimental setup in real time, etc.

The goal of the workshop is to provide a basic training on detectors for FELs. By attending this workshop, users will learn how to efficiently collect good quality data with the CSPAD. The information provided will help users to write proposals and design their experiments at LCLS. Program:
