We are pleased to announce the 3rd Workshop on Studies on Dynamically Compressed Matter with X-rays to be held at the European Synchrotron (ESRF) in Grenoble July 7-9 2020 (lunch to lunch).
In the recent years shock-induced dynamic compression has witnessed a revolution thanks to the coupling of powerful lasers or other shock-generating devices to X-rays brilliant probes, opening new exciting opportunities for the scientific community.
The aim of the workshop is to gather scientists, both from the static and dynamic extreme conditions community, to discuss recent results and new scientific frontiers that can be explored thanks to this combination. This meeting is intended to inspire new projects and to offer opportunities for discussing future collaboration between workshop participants in particular in view of the opening of the High Power Laser Facility at the ESRF, coupling a nsec, 100J laser to time-resolved X-ray Absorption.
Time resolved X-ray diffraction (XRD) and X-ray imaging (XRI) coupled to dynamic compression experiments at the ESRF will be covered as well and plans for a future extension of HPLF (HPLF-II) to other X-rays techniques – XRD, XRI and X-ray emission spectroscopy- will be presented.
The main topics are:
– Planetary science: structure, evolution, geodynamics of planets, space impacts
– Warm Dense Matter: equation of state and phase diagram
– Behaviour of matter under high strain rates, comparison to static compression
– Synthesis of new materials, new chemistry
– Ab initio simulations for matter under extreme conditions
