Adaptive & Active X-ray and XUV optics (ACTOP11)

4th – 5th April 2011 Diamond Light Source, Oxfordshire, UK

Following the success of earlier Adaptive & Active X-ray & XUV Optics (ACTOP) workshops (Soleil 2006, Elettra 2008, Osaka 2009), a 4th International workshop was held at Diamond Light Source Ltd, UK.

Topics covered:

  • Reflective and refractive adaptive/active optics for SR and FEL sources
  • Challenges for metrology
  • X-ray beam shaping and wavefront optimisation
  • Recent advances in optic fabrication and control technology
  • Groundbreaking scientific progress enabled by adaptive / active optics
  • Future requirements for adaptive / active optics at SR & FEL sources
