2021 Planning Workshop on ATF MeV Ultrafast Electron Diffraction (UED) Facility

Mark Palmer (Brookhaven National Laboratory)

This workshop is open to the public. All participants must submit a registration form in order to attend. There is no registration fee for this workshop.  Be advised that this workshop will be recorded.

Brookhaven's Accelerator Test Facility (ATF) currently operates an MeV-Class Ultrafast Electron Diffraction (UED) Facility as part of its DOE Office of Science User Facility portfolio with the goal of further developing user capabilities in this area. With an increasing number of users, this workshop will provide an opportunity to discuss future prospects and directions for the facility as well as provide input on a path forward for the instrument to evolve into a standalone facility. The workshop will discuss the details of the instrument, past performance, and future possibilities.

Notice: This event falls under Exemption E. Meetings such as Advisory Committee and Federal Advisory Committee meetings. Solicitation/Funding Opportunity Announcement Review Board meetings, peer review/objective review panel meetings, evaluation panel/board meetings, and program kick‐off and review meetings (including those for grants and contracts).
